What A Pear

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-What-A-Pear

Let’s talk about pears.

The most underrated fruit. Ever.

I mean… how often do you see somebody bite into a juicy apple… on the daily. But a pear? Never.

I don’t get it. I’ll admit… Pears didn’t used to cross my mind all that often until they were falling off of my sister’s pear tree by the bucket full ( who knew ) and I started eating them like cray.

Now I incorporate pears into my daily green juice… and when i start to chop that baby up I no longer want to juice it… I want to eat it. This got me thinking a lot about pears ( #deepthoughts ). Why are they so delish… and why do they do a body good?

So here’s the deal… pears are high in anti-oxidants and full of anti-inflammatory nutrients such as Vitamin E and Omega 3 Fatty Acids. They are also the second highest source of flavanols among ALL fruits and veggies.

An increased consumption of pears has been linked to a decrease in many chronic illnesses including heart disease and type II Diabetes. Furthermore, pears have been linked to a decreased cancer risk! Pears are also high in fiber, great for digestion, and contain lutein and beta-carotene with are stellar for your eye health.

That being said… a-pear-ently , pears are like, really, really good for you! Woohoo!

What’s your fav underrated fruit?
