I was thinking about our holiday diets the other day as I was observing a breakroom table full of cakes, cookies, candies and the extra goodies and ect. Of course we all have heard "it's the Holidays, a little bit can't hurt" but is that true! No wonder our stress level goes through the roof when we eat the extra sugars and calories "just because its the holidays". Now I am no saint when it comes to the occasional sweet treat or extra I thought I would share this article with you by a friend of ours (she is a registered dietitian)

Oh yea and I might add that vinegar is a great digestive when we do, uh well, overdo it on the holidays.

Cheers, Chef

  • 6 of your favorite mix of peaches, apricots, nectarines (firmer is better)

  • Sparrow Lane Vanilla Bean Balsamic

  • Sparrow Lane Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Sparrow Lane D’Anjou Pear Vinegar

  • Preheat grill. Make sure it’s brushed clean and wiped down.

  • Halve and pit the stone fruit, place in a large mixing bowl.

  • Gently add oil to coat the fruit.

  • Add 1/4 cup of Sparrow Lane Vanilla Bean Balsamic and toss.

  • Leave to marinate at room temp for about 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Once grill is hot place the fruit flesh side down on the grill—watch for flame up, you don’t want to char the fruit, just go for nice grill marks.

  • Use a flat spatula to turn 1/4 clockwise, fruit will be getting soft at this point so be gentle.

  • Gently turn over on the skin side just enough to soften.

  • Remove from the grill, place on to serving plate and splash with D’Anjou Pear vinegar.
