Paleo Staples - Pineapple

 The wonderful pineapple! Sweet yet tart and juicy it is unique in the fact it is loaded with Bromelain, an enzyme that confers numerous health benefits.

 It is rare that I enjoy fresh pineapple here in the Great White North, usually only occasionally when they are on sale at the grocery stores. They usually retail between $4-6 CDN. I do enjoy canned pineapple as long as it does not contain added sugars or other additives but it pales in comparison to the fresh fruit.

 How floored was I when I discovered fresh pineapples on sale at Sobey's for $2 each today when I was out foraging. Score! Needless to say I walked out with four of them and quickly prepped and ate one with the assistance of my son as soon as I got home. Talk about a taste of tropical sunshine on a March day.Delicious.
