Fall Juicing: Apples, Pears and Pomegranates

Pears!

The sweet and juicy pear. I believe they are falls compensation for not letting strawberries grow year round. Just eating one alone, no frills, is pretty dang satisfying, yet they are so much more than just the apple's softer friend. Pears have the highest fiber content of all the fruits, and is linked to preventing heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers (breast, stomach and lung). The skin of the pear contains quercetin, a powerful antioxidant that is known to help artery problems, so blending instead of juicing might be a good way to keep that pulpy benefit. Lucky for the sensitive souls, pears are also the most hypoallergenic fruit, meaning that most of those intolerant of say, peaches, have a much better chance at not reacting negatively to these little gems, allowing everyone to get in a good daily fruit serving.
