Hey, hey— Happy Wednesday! What are your thoughts on pears? How long has it been since you ate/had one or some?
I recently talked with a client and explained how I was on a pear-kick lately, and she replied, “my old personal trainer use to eat pears everyday. I love them, but when I browse a produce section, I always feel like pears are ‘a boring fruit’ 😂” we cracked up over that.
I told tell her why I loved them (besides being tasty), and wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite reasons to eat them, daily!
— Digestion - Pears are rich in fiber. Eating a medium-sized pear contains 5.2 grams (daily value should be around 30 grams).
— Energy - Pears provide an efficient and fast source of energy— the natural and easily digestible sugar in pears (glucose/fructose) can be utilized anytime during the day for a healthy, instant boost in your energy level(s).
— Brain - A medium-sized pear has 14% of the daily value of copper, which is beneficial for its ability to promote a strong central nervous system. Copper ions in the brain are relied on to make neural synapses (promotes chemical or electrical signals pass to another cell) weaker or stronger. The more efficient neural synapses increase the ability to remember and learn.
— Anti-inflammatory - The anti-inflammatory properties, like phytonutrients, are very helpful for relieving chronic inflammation, particularly in our tummies/stomachs.
— Cholesterol - Pears are rich in the water soluble dietary fiber pectin, which is used for controlling the body’s cholesterol levels… and if you rely on meds to help adjust your cholesterol levels… maaaaybe think about cutting back on a bad snack, and add some pears to your life 😜
Hope you enjoyed today’s #wellnesswednesday post— will you eat more pears?
