fall vegetarian

This crisp recipe is directly from my 21-Day Online Fall Detox: Reset to Real Food. This program is full of gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free recipes that are anything but bland diet food. This salad is both flavourful and filling and an example of how a salad can actually be a meal.

Pears are the Fall sister fruit to apples. Rich in fiber and low on the glycemic index, pears keep you satisfied and support stable blood sugar levels. If you have really strong cravings or can’t go 3 hours without feeling jittery, irritable or ravenous, you likely have some blood sugar instability. Including fiber and low GI foods, like pears, into your diet will help reduce these uncomfortable effects and overwhelming cravings.
