These maple walnut baked pears are super easy to make, and are really delicious. With just four ingredients and in less than 30 minutes, you can have a divine dessert on the table that's dressed to impress. I actually served these at a holiday brunch last week and they were a huge hit.
This recipe comes from Sima's Healthy Indulgence by Sima Cohen. After working as a trainer, nutritionist, and life coach helping private clients transform their lives with the power of real food, Sima wrote her cookbook to share her philosophy with a broader audience. I provided a blurb for this awesome cookbook because it contains really simple nutritious recipes that make being healthy so easy.
In my blurb I said, "Sima’s easy and accessible approach to wellness will inspire you to transform your life from the inside out, and have fun, too! Her simple lifestyle tips and delicious recipes can help you gain more energy and vitality to be the best version of you." Not all of the recipes are vegetarian, but there are a lot of veggie and vegan options in the book.
Sima shares her step-by-step health philosophy; tips for stocking your kitchen; 10 techniques to get in great physical shape; the 3 main elements to her indulgence plan: self, sweat, and substance; and her 3-day detox plan. I also really like how she divides her go-to healthy foods into: power proteins, complex carbs, and friendly fats. There is also a fantastic superfood chart
With the recipes, she also divides them up in a fun and accessible way into her main S's:
Some of my favorite recipes include: Golden Mylk Chia Pudding; Strawberry Rose Oatmeal; Za’atar Chickpea Pocket; Happy and Sweet Soup; Stuffed Sweet Potato with Warm Bean Salad; Cherry Tahini Exercise Bites; Better Than Brownie Spread; Muhammara; Power Goji Tea; Cleansing Cardamom Tea; Lavender Coconut Lemonade; Blushing Rose Sorbet; and Chocoholic Cups.
There are so many easy recipes in this book, so snag your copy of Sima's Indulgence, and learn more about Sima Cohen.
