In times of stress, people generally search for sweets to help them find relief.
It’s understandable… sweets are comfort foods.
Believe it or not, I even know someone that when he is stressed out, will eat jam or jelly with a spoon straight out of the jar! I cannot imagine doing that, but I totally get it.
If you have found yourself feeling super-stressed by all that’s going on in the world, and are seeking some sweet relief, try this pear crumble instead.
It’s sweet, but not sickly sweet like eating straight-up sugar (or jam out of the jar).
Plus, it does have fiber to keep things running smoothly, ginger that promotes digestive wellness, and allspice to ward off bugs and pathogens.
Hey, if you’re going down the sugary path, you might as well go down with something delicious that has a healthy benefit for you 🙂
