This cinnamon pear salad is so delicious, especially in the winter. At that time of year, there are not so many fresh fruits in season. Apples and pears last a long time in the fridge.
The common apple has uncommonly huge health benefits, and how to best enjoy them. Your mom didn’t use the term superfood but she knew about apples. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” was the first nutritional advice I and many children heard from their moms. For this reason, we call them “the first superfood.”
Pears have more nutrients per calorie than calories per nutrient (surprising since they are so sweet). They are what I call a Smart Carb. and are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, copper & vitamin K. They are often considered a hypoallergenic fruit that is less likely to produce an adverse response than other fruits by healthcare practitioners making them a great first fruit fed to infants as a safe way to start.
Alkaline Nutritional Tip: Did you know that Pears and Apples are in the highest alkalizing category.
When we think of cinnamon we usually imagine delicious pastries or a hot drink but cinnamon is also full of health benefits. These benefits are backed by valid scientific research. It is helpful from lowering “bad” HDL cholesterol levels to lowering blood sugar levels. It makes this cinnamon pear salad taste heavenly.
