What I'm Loving: Pear Everything

I love so many things about the changing of a season. From the change in attitude, to the change in climate, to the change in clothing, each change in season brings with it renewal--like hitting the reset button. I especially love the new varieties of fruits and vegetables available each season. For summer, I was a major berry fan--blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, more please. As we ring in all things Fall lately, pears have become a staple in this house. Every day. With that being said, I wanted to share with you a few quick and healthy meals we eat on a daily basis with this seasonal fruit.

Pear-03

As a snack or breakfast, both Preston and I have been loving this pear parfait.

PEAR PARFAIT

3/4 cup Fage' 0% Greek Yogurt

2 heaping TBSP 0% Cottage Cheese

2 TBSP granola

1/2 - 1 Pear chopped in cubes

Local Honey (drizzled on top)

I also have been loving this pear and pumpkin goat cheese salad for lunch. I usually use the other half of the pair I ate for my snack earlier that day. (:

PEAR & PUMKIN GOAT CHEESE SALAD

2 Handfuls Organic Baby Spinach

1/2 Pear sliced thinly

1/3 Avocado

1 tsp Pumpkin Goat Cheese (crumbled)

1 tsp sliced almonds

Local Honey (drizzled on top)

1 tsp olive oil

salt, pepper, and garlic powder for taste

If you love pears as much as I do, you should give these quick meals a whirl!
