Spring is Sprung

Spring & Summer in our house means pineapples….yummo!  I have fond memories of road trips to the beach which always included a stop at a roadside stall to pick up fresh pineapples.  These sweet treats originated in South America & were named by early European explorers who thought it kinda looked like a pinecone.  Hmm, I guess – if you squint & maybe tilt your head.

There are loads of reasons to love a pineapple.  Need more?  They are rich in loads of vitamins & minerals – especially Vitamin C & manganese.  Plus, they are rich in antioxidants; they also contain the digestive enzyme, bromelain; & is an anti-inflammatory.

I often just serve pineapple with mint, but I discovered this at the end of last year.  It may be a new fav.

A fav pineapple option in our house!

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
