A pear a day, keeps your body humming

Pears are just as good if not better for you than apples.  According to the Environmental Working Group, one pear has more fiber, potassium, and folate – and less pesticide residue – than one apple.pear

So mix it up this year, take a pear with your lunch instead of the usual same old apple.

Peary Goodness Smoothie
1 pear, core cut out
1 apple, cut into quarters, seeds removed
handful of spinach (tiny handful or few leaves if you’re new to green smoothies)
1 c. water (if you’re a green smoothie lover)
or
1 c. apple or grape juice (if you’re new to green smoothies. If it’s too sweet, use 1/2 c. water and 1/2 c. juice. then gradually work your way to just water, no juice).
or
1/2 c. vanilla greek yogurt and little water to blend as needed
ice to thicken
blend well

Enjoy!
