Red Bartlett Pear

April 1st, 2008 at 03:44 pm

Another small success for today. I chose a red bartlett pear as my afternoon snack instead of a Snickers candy bar.

I'm going to try and make it to dinner without any other snacks, but not sure if I'll be able to hold out. This is the first time in months that I have made it into the afternoon without sugar sustaining me so it is a small success thus far.

    How do you find good pears? I have been very frustrated because all I seem to find are hard ones or mealy ones with no flavor. I miss Grandma's pear tree!

    I'm not an expert at all but I use the tips here

    and that has helped me a lot on getting better quality fruit.

    Thanks for link; I'm honored & glad I could help you out.

    When you are first starting on a diet, fruit is really unsatisfying. Your body says, "wha?" and starts to laugh and suddenly you're digging in your desk drawer for that last candy bar. You need to combine the fruit with something else.

    Two classic pairings:
    Apple + tbsp peanut butter.
    Pear + 1 oz of cheese.
