IN SEA­SON: PINEAP­PLES

Prevention (Australia) - - Nutrition Now -

Juicy, sweet (and cheap right now be­cause they’re in sea­son) pineap­ples aren’t only a de­li­cious snack. Did you know that this ed­i­ble thorny plant con­tains a com­pound called brome­lain? It has po­ten­tial ther­a­peu­tic ef­fects and has been linked to re­duced pain and in­flam­ma­tion. Not only that, but this en­zyme is a great meat ten­deriser. Just rub a chunk of pineap­ple lightly over meat or chicken be­fore you pop it on the grill or bar­be­cue – it won’t make the food taste of pineap­ple, but you’ll en­joy de­li­ciously ten­der juicy steaks.
