Cooking With ChaiIf you are a chai lover, and you love cooking, you will already know how delicious and easy Chai is to incorporate into recipes. For something super easy try infusing pears with Chai and enjoy them on their own or with a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt – yum! Not only are pears sweet and juicy, but they are also an unsung hero in the fruit world. Move over apple – a pear day might keep the doctor away too!
Did You Know That Pears Are
- Great for digestion: Consumption of dietary fibre is key for digestive health and preventing constipation. What’s more, a raw pear is 84% water, so if you struggle to stay hydrated throughout the day, this tasty snack can be a way of increasing your intake.
- May help with weight management: While the calorie content of some fruits – such as dates and avocados – can put some people off, there is no such issue with pears.
- A great source of antioxidants: Like the humble tea leaf, pears are a great source of antioxidants and polyphenols, including flavanols. Pears are also a source of the antioxidant nutrient vitamin C!
- They can help balance blood sugar: Pears provide a proportion of their sugar as fructose. Interestingly, fructose-rich foods do not raise blood sugar levels as rapidly as glucose – This means that pears are the perfect sweet snack for balancing blood sugar.
- Are said to provide key minerals: hidden in pears are traces of minerals you might not expect but are key for the body’s wellbeing, such as potassium, magnesium and iron.
