A New Way to Enjoy a Favorite Winter Fruit
We sometimes see pears served alongside creamy cheeses and garnished with spoonfuls of honey as an appetizer. Here's an A.M. spin on the delicious trio, using plain Greek yogurt instead of cheese (it's an excellent source of protein and probiotics, which research suggests may improve energy levels) and pure maple syrup rather than honey. You chop the fruit and cook it quickly, stir in raw pumpkin seeds then spoon the mixture over yogurt for an unexpected warm-and-cool breakfast.
