Life has been keeping me on my toes, to say the least. This past month I’ve been all kinds of up and down. My days have been super busy but amazingly enough, I’m still finding the time to stop and smell the roses. As crazy as life can get we can choose to find joy in the little moments and this pear-perfect fruit salad puts a smile on my face.
Pear Perfect Fruit Salad
I hope you all are enjoying your summer. We are definitely taking advantage and finding any excuse to be in the water. Staying hydrated and cool are the best ways to embrace the summer heat for sure. Homeschooling has been very “go with the flow” but we are shifting a lot and I know it’s for the better.
I did have time this week to post an awesome new recipe. I noticed that I don’t really have breakfast recipes to recommend to people. I usually just do a smoothie or juice for breakfast but for those that haven’t developed that habit or want something a little different, here is a recipe that I make, both fast and of course delicious.
Now that pears are in season I am loving this fruit salad. Made it twice last week and need to go get more pears so I can make it again. It’s super light and refreshing, sweet, and with a crunch. How great is that!
Pears are packed with health-benefiting nutrients such as dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins, which are necessary for optimum health. Pear fruit is one of the very low-calorie fruits; provides just 58 calories per 100g. A low-calorie but high-fiber diet may help bring significant reduction in body weight, and blood LDL cholesterol levels. Pears are also a good source of dietary fiber, which may offer protection against colon cancer. Most of the fiber in them is non-soluble making them a good bulk laxative in the gut. Additionally, its fiber content binds to cancer-causing toxins and chemicals in the colon, protecting its mucous membrane from contact with these compounds. This fruit is a good source of minerals such as copper, iron, potassium, manganese, and magnesium as well as B-complex vitamins such as folates, riboflavin, and pyridoxine (vitamin B-6).Print
