Back 15 years ago when I was cleansing (due to food sensitivities) pears were the only fruit I could eat for months. Perhaps I got my fill or something. Anyway, I don't tend to eat pears.
But maybe I should.
As with most clean green foods the pear has a bunch of health benefits.
According to Prevention Magazine (Feb/Mar 2016) pears provide 11% of our daily vitamin C needs along with 9% of our daily copper requirements. Which means they act as antioxidants to protect us against those damned free radicals that do bad things like make us look older and give us cancer and stuff.
So that's all good I guess.
But that's not why I'm writing about pears. There's more ...
The big news is that pears can help beat a hangover! Yup! According to studies conducted at the CSIRO it turns out that pears can help speed up how we metabolise alcohol. BUT (there are always "buts" in life) it only works if you eat the pears before you start drinking.
Isn't that interesting?
I wonder if it works WHILE you're drinking?
Pear martini anyone?
What's your favourite fruit?
Do you have pears at your house?
Anyone have any good pear juice cocktail recipes?
PS I found some pear juice cocktail recipes here.

For all my blogger friends out there I have taken a huge bloggy step and decided to have a linky party at my joint. I've been thinking about it for two years and done nothing about it. So given my word(s) of the year are "Onward and Upward" I decided it was time.
It's possible you've already had your fill of linkies. But if not, the Lovin' Life Linky will go live this coming Sunday at 8.30am (because it's Sunday and that deserves a sleep in). You can read about it here, but basically it's just about sharing the stuff that makes us happy.
Hope you can join me. Cause there really is a lot to love about life ...
