Spiced Vanilla Poached Pears are a beautiful, elegant holiday dessert, easier to make than they look! They are also suitable for just about any diet template. Try your hand at them!
I’m on a mission, y’all. I want to prove to you that you can make some pretty elegant food at home – even on a healing diet like the autoimmune protocol (AIP)! I’m a big ol’ foodie, and when I decided to take on the AIP lifestyle to improve my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis symptoms, I grieved all the delicious flavors and foods I would be missing. Over time, I discovered ways to adapt those foods, and have them once again in my life.
I used to look at photos like the one above and think, “I could never make that.” Please believe me when I say that it’s not as hard as it looks! Sure, there’s a little effort involved, but what wonderful thing on this earth doesn’t involve a little effort? It’s totally doable, folks.
(For full transparency, this recipe was commissioned by the good people at Singing Dog Vanilla. They are my favorite vanilla company, and I’m not just saying that.)
See those little specks on the pears? It’s not pepper. It’s real, honest to goodness vanilla, namely Singing Dog organic vanilla coconut palm sugar. There is also an organic vanilla bean used in the sauce. Don’t fret, if you are avoiding legumes. Vanilla “bean” is not actually a bean, but the pod from a certain kind of orchid.
I’ll keep this short and sweet… because December. As always, I’m wishing you great love and deep healing!
