Why You Need to Eat More Pineapple

[vc_column_text width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

Juicy, bright, and delicious, the pineapple fruit deserves a spot in everyones’ fridge. Full of vitamins and trace minerals, pineapple makes EVERYTHING taste sweeter (most notably people and tequila). Fresh pineapple (not canned)  has a unique enzyme called bromelain, which aids digestion and calms inflammation. Did you know that pineapple is used overseas for its effectiveness in clearing excess mucus from the body?  This is good news if you have been bombarded with a cold, the flu, or a stomach viruse (which have been ridiculously widespread in recent months).

Healthy Diet Foods: Pineapple

A one cup serving of pineapple provides an impressive 80% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of manganese, a mineral that plays a critical role in the formation of healthy blood, strong bones, and an efficient metabolism.

Studies show that pre-cut pineapple from the grocery store is just as nutritious as the whole fruit, so if convenience is an issue, it saves time and hassle. I personally enjoy pineapple by itself, but there are endless recipes for every meal that incorporate the fruit. A few good recipes from around the web that I’ve tried are listed below:

Breakfast: Healthy Fruit Parfait

Lunch:  Spring Asparagus Chicken Salad

Snack: Tequila and Lime Baked Pineapple

Smoothie: Fresh Pineapple Ginger Smoothie

Dinner: Shrimp and Pineapple With Coconut Rice


Feel free to share any pineapple recipes that you like. Stay healthy, stay sweet, and go enjoy some pineapple already. xx
