One of my favorite foods is cinnamon and it goes so great with fruit. This recipes uses baked pears but you can also make it with apples. The cranberry apple syrup is naturally sweet. The point is home cooking is better than eating out. It can help you with weight loss too. When you make it at home you can not overload a recipe with foods that aren’t good for you. Also you can use higher quality ingredients for your dishes.
If you’re looking to still enjoy dessert but cut down on sugar, this recipe is perfect. It also is simple to make; this helps you do more home cooking. Eating out is costly and many people think it takes too much time to cook at home.
Home Cooking A Key To Successful Weight Loss
In 2008 looking at the scale I realized I need to lose weight. I was tired, had back pain, and I didn’t like the way I looked in my clothes. Of course, I knew better and decided to take my own advice when I talk about weight loss.
Start eating at home more. This meant I had to practice home cooking. My desire like many Americans, for sugar was out of control. Finding options for sugary desserts was a primary on the list of lifestyle changes I knew I needed to make.
This recipe was one of the first I started making. my husband likes it best with pears, and I love it with apples.
- 4 Bosc pears
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 6-8 cloves
Preheat oven to 400. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear to help keep them standing upright in a baking dish. Pour fruit juice into the pan. Add cinnamon sticks and cloves. Roast the pears, basting every 15 minutes, until tender, brown and puckered. Remove the pears and place on a serving plate. Pour remaining liquid into a small sauce pan, bring to high heat, and reduce by half. Drizzle that liquid on top of the pears.
Weight Loss And Natural Food
One thing that is important when starting to do more home cooking is to shop for organic food or at the least local. Selecting fruit that is on sale means cost savings. Weight loss is not only arriving at your ideal healthy weight, it’s keeping it off. Baked pears or apples is a healthy dessert option.
Fruit contains a sugar called fructose. When we eat sugars from glucose along with fructose, we cannot digestion either and they become somewhat toxic to our bodies. This can result in inflammation, weight gain, and joint pain.
Eating fruit sugar alone is easily digestible and your body needs the nutrients and fiber. Fruit digests quickly. When eaten with meat protein, grains, or carbohydrates it’s hard to absorb the nutrients. It is best to consume foods such as pears, or apples 30 minutes before other foods or one hour after eating a meal.
Choosing to empower yourself through lifestyle such as eating well can add years of healthy living to your life.
