🍐 Asian Pears - A “Seasonal Food” with medicinal benefits! 🍂
When the weather is dry and cold you can help your body by eating foods that nourish fluids and yin. ⛄
👉 Some great suggestions come right from miss Mother Nature - “seasonal foods”!
Asian pears are a great Fall/Winter seasonal food as are Walnuts (I've talked about those in another article/blog post).

👏 Asian pears, unlike European ones, are round and are firm to touch when ripe. They have a brownish yellowish outer cover and have a juicy crisp white center inside. Their texture is similar to that of an apple. Although, these pears tend to be on the pricier side, their benefits outweigh their expense.
