Pineapple

Pineapples are truly one of the most distinctive creations that nature has bestowed on us. Their beautiful exterior is topped only by their delicious juicy flavor and versatility. It's no wonder that pineapples have symbolized welcome for hundreds of years. Eaten raw or cooked, pineapples are loaded with vitamins and minerals. An added bonus is that it helps to build healthy bones; just one cup of pineapple provides 73% of the daily recommended amount of manganese. Because of their affordability and universal appeal, pineapples are an easy way to reverse the trend of processed foods!
