Tid Bit(e) Tuesday
I feel like they don’t get the credit they deserve! The first time I tried pears it was from a container and they were super gross soooo I thought I didn’t like them. BUT I tried a fresh pear when I was like 17 (I know so many years without them!!) and I LOVED them!! They are the perfect sweetness and packed with water and fiber in fact
- Pears are one of the highest fiber fruits!
- Quercetin- This is a compound found in the skin of pairs that can help reduce blood pressure (1) so make sure you don’t peel them and don’t buy them in a container where they are already peeled (and really mushy and gross)
- Flavonoids- Flavonoids are what give color to fruits and vegetables. And they also have other benefits like improving insulin sensitivity in people that have type 2 diabetes (2)
