If you enjoy pears as much as I do, I recommend trying out this simple pear recipe for a dessert this week. Pears are considered cold and sweet in nature and are used by traditional Chinese Medicine to detoxify, promote overall skin health, and eliminate any congestion in our lungs and large intestine. Pears are also known to lower blood pressure, boost our immune system, lower cholesterol levels, and regulate our bowels. And don't forget about serving the pears with some cinnamon! Not only is cinnamon an extremely anti-inflammatory spice that is packed with antioxidants, but it boosts metabolism, stabilizes blood sugar levels, and improves poor circulation. This reason alone is why I put it in my coffee, smoothies, cacao protein balls, energy bars, steel cut oat muffins, chia seed puddings, and dessert.
