Why snacking on a pear is so good for your health


It’s sweet, juicy and full of vitamins. So many health benefits:

  
And pears contain quite a bit of fiber. So this not only helps move the rest of your food through the digestive tract, but also helps to keep you full for longer. This is what makes a pear an excellent weight-loss food.

  
Take a pear with you for a snack. I love my pears ripe. When I press the skin it shouldn’t be as hard as an apple. And when I smell the fruit it should smell beautiful. That’s when I know it is ready to eat.

Take your pears to go.
  
 
What is your favorite way to eat this fruit? Do you cook and make desserts with it? Or do you like to eat it like I do, raw?
