Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With A Guilt Free Treat!
Craving something sweet? Indulging in a piece of fresh fruit is the perfect way to go. Sweet and juicy, fruit can satisfy your hunger—and your sweet tooth—while offering a variety of beneficial vitamins and nutrients.
There's nothing quite like biting into a mouthwateringly juicy piece of fresh pineapple to make you feel like you're transported to the tropics. Naturally free of fat and cholesterol, pineapples are an incredibly delicious source of Vitamin C. Found in foods including parsley, bell peppers, strawberries, oranges, kale and broccoli, Vitamin C helps lower the risk of cancer, protect cells from free radical damage, and improve the absorption of Iron.
Pineapple is also rich in Manganese, which plays a role in energy production. Foods that are high in Manganese are also believed to help maintain bone strength and health, protect cells from free radical damage, and help the body synthesize cholesterol.
So eat up! A fruit salad of pineapple, strawberries and orange segments is bursting with Vitamin C. For a sunny breakfast or afternoon snack, blend up a smoothie made with fresh pineapple and your favorite smoothie ingredients, from creamy yogurt to fresh berries.
Full of vitamins K and C, as well as dietary fiber, shredded cabbage is a great base for a light and crunchy coleslaw, with pineapple as the perfect addition. It lends a perfect complement of sweet flavor and beautiful golden color to slaws and salads alike. It's also spectacular for grilled kabobs, and is sensational in beverages for a refreshing treat.
Treat yourself to fresh ripe pineapple, and you'll immediately discover just how delicious healthy eating can be!
