Is there any fruit that’s more “summer” than than pineapple? Ok, ok, strawberries do give them pretty good competition. But, no matter what your favorite summer fruit is, it’s hard to to deny that whether you’re eating pineapples straight, grilling them up, or throwing them into a salad (or a smoothie!), the golden fruits are beyond delicious.
And, they’re also loaded with tons of good for you phytonutrients. 1 cup contains more than 100% of your recommended vitamin C for the day and 77% of maganese (this helps with bone production and making your skin look good). They are also loaded with fiber and vitamin B6.
You could buy pre-cut pineapple in cans or fresh at the store, but cutting your own pineapple isn’t hard. In fact, we bet you could do have the whole pineapple prepped in less than 2 minutes. Watch below as Kirsten shows you how.
