Pineapple is an amazingness fruit. It's popular throughout the world due to its sweet, tropical flavor, but it may also be one of the most beneficial fruits available. Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple’s value. Proteolytic means “breaks down protein”, which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently. Bromelain is also known to be anti-inflammatory so be sure to add fresh pineapple or juice to your Lil'Prince or Princesses diet if they have a bug bite or injury with swelling. The pineapple will help to slow down and even reverse the swelling. Pineapple also has a very high amount of Vitamin C....one cup of fresh pineapple is equal to 75% of your daily recommended dose....so it is especially helpful with battling colds. Are you preggo & dealing with morning sickness? Simply drink a large glass of fresh pineapple juice and voila! No more nausea. It really works!
Well now that I totally just geeked out on pineapple nutrition comes the "complicated" part ;-)
I've always been a pineapple lover, but for years I was always too scared to buy a whole pineapple due to the fact that it had to be sliced up :-/ I didn't wanna look like an idiot and do it wrong..... Or waste the whole thing by doing it wrong & then have to throw it away......then while I was pregnant with the Lil'Princess & and going threw my totally geeking out on preggo nutrition phase o f pregnacy......I stumbled across a tutorial on Pinterest and decided since I had so much time on my hands why not attempt this since it's super healthy ect....And omgggg!!!! It wasn't even that difficult at all. All these years I went scared to buy fresh pineapple and ahhhh..... So simple to slice -_- Now I buy fresh pineapples all the time..... Love cooking with it & everyone in my household enjoys it!!!!
