Baked Honey Spiced Pears - Food Therapy for the Lungs

Updated: Dec 2, 2019

Too much work, studying and lack of sleep finally got the best of me and I caught a cold. Good thing I work right in a my own Chinese herbal pharmacy!! In addition to making custom prescribed Chinese herbal medicine to get me feeling back to 100%, food therapy is essential when you have a cold. This is the recipe I am making myself this morning to help my lungs, clear up congestion and recover quickly using Chinese food therapy ingredients for the lungs - pears, honey, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. I'm all about simple and easy recipes, especially when I'm feeling under the weather with little energy to cook.

This recipe is especially great for kids because it tastes delicious and sweet and it will help soothe their cough and cold symptoms. For patients with asthma, allergies, sinus problems, and other acute or chronic lung issues, this recipe is wonderful and easy food therapy!


  • 2 organic pears, halved and cored

  • honey, organic & local

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut two pears in half lengthwise and use a measuring spoon to scoop out the core and seeds. Create a flat surface on the outer part of the pear by slicing a small piece straight.

Place pears on a baking sheet, core side facing up. Sprinkle with cinnamon, ginger and cloves (or use pumpkin pie spice instead).

Top with walnuts and drizzle with honey. Bake for 30 minutes and enjoy as a breakfast, snack or healthy dessert!
