Pear and Apple Sauce Recipe

Diabetic Friendly Recipe

Pear and Apple Sauce makes a wonderful topping for just about anything you would like to pour it on!

Pack your fruit bowl with pears if you want to lose weight, reports a study out of the University of Rio de Janeiro. In the study, which was published in the journal of Nutrition, women who ate three pears a day consumed fewer total daily calories and lost more weight than those who did not. Pears are rich in fiber (one pear packs 15 percent of your daily recommended amount), and thus, pears should help you feel full and keep you from over-eating.
