Dietitian's Tip: 

To add extra protein and get your dairy serving, try eating the baked pears with regular or Greek yogurt. And don’t forget, nuts are a great source of healthful monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, so you can mix-and-match different kinds to match your taste buds. 

Ingredients: 

2 large ripe pears
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup crushed walnuts 

Preparation: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the pears in half and place on a baking sheet (try cutting a sliver off the other end so they sat upright).

2. Using a measuring spoon or melon baller, scoop out the seeds.

3. Sprinkle with cinnamon, top with walnuts and drizzle 1/2 teaspoon honey over each one.

4. Bake in the oven 30 minutes. Remove, let cool and enjoy!
