Nourishment Notes


Pears are an excellent source of fiber to help promote digestive regularity as well as heart health.


Walnuts are one of the few plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are important for heart and brain health, as well as reducing inflammation within the body.


Cinnamon is a powerhouse spice full of antioxidants, types of nutrient that help protect cells from becoming damaged. Cinnamon may also help with blood sugar control. This is important because people with psoriatic disease are more likely to develop conditions like type 2 diabetes.


Ginger is a powerful antioxidant, has been shown to reduce nausea, and may help relieve muscle pain and soreness.

PD Cooking Tips

  • Oat Mixture

    Use a maple flavored or cinnamon and sugar flavored instant oatmeal packet to fill the pears; oat and spice mixture can be prepared a few days in advance.
