A Pairing That Deserves More Love
Ginger and pear aren't as well known a combination as, say, apples and cinnamon, but there's something pretty fantastic about tasting the flavors of mellow pears and zippy ginger together. These nibbles, which boast immune system-friendly vitamins C and E, include dates, dried pears, cashews, pistachios, oats, cashew butter and ground ginger; then, after you roll the mixture into golf ball-size spheres, you coat them in chopped pistachios, for a little crunch and a gorgeous green hue.

Bonus: Pistachios are an excellent source of vitamin B6, which helps support the natural production of serotonin, a relaxing neurotransmitter.
