Pears with Pumpkin Fig Cream

 In Recipes

Pears are packed with fiber and a fabulous option for nourishing our gut bacteria. Pears, especially red ones, are filled with antioxidants and are anti-inflammatory. We need all the antioxidants we can get in our toxic world so including pears in your toolbox is a good idea.

Some people consider pears bland so I have matched them up with a pumpkin fig cream that is reminiscent of gingerbread to give this breakfast bowl a kick.
