Pears are considered powerful fruit. It contains phytonutrients, including anti-inflammatory flavonoids and polyphenols. Pears are rich in fibers, especially pectins, that have beneficial effects on health. One fresh pear contains about 12% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C. Have a low glycemic index, pears can be used when following diets, like the ketogenic diet, weight loss diet, low glycemic diet, and others.
Nuts – here you can use your imagination and use nuts that you like the most. Walnuts, pine nuts, cashews, pecan nuts will pair perfectly with pears. But the most I like the combination of roasted almonds with blue cheese, and pear. It doesn’t matter what kind of nuts will you choose, as all of them are an excellent source of protein, Omega – 6, Omega – 3 ( healthy fats), magnesium, and Vitamin E.
Honey is an optional ingredient for this recipe. Honey is considered to be low in cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fats. It also has antibacterial action. Anyway, if you have a honey intolerance you can easily skip it or substitute it with agave syrup. An interesting shade to this dish will give some drops of homemade Cinnamon syrup.
