I'm not diabetic but do have some health issues and am trying to eat better. Literally, I wanted to go get a meal at the drive-thru but decided eat at home instead. I chose this recipe because it looked so easy and fast, and because I bought two pears at the store. I know that ginger and cinnamon have some great benefits. Since I'm used to eating foods with much higher sugar and fat content, this tasted a little bland to me. But it was quick to prepare, filling, and I feel good about having made a healthier choice today (every healthier choice is good). I followed the recipe but added a few whole raw almonds and one small chopped-up piece of ginger candy (crystallized ginger) for garnish on top. It looked very pretty. I will probably make this again at some point. Very simple. Thanks for the free recipe idea.
