Other Benefits Of Pineapple Fruits

Posted on Updated on

Last weekend I went to the market to buy groceries for cooking over the  weekend lunch and dinner. I stumbled upon a stall selling “honey” pineapple. I bought one which is about  2 kg.  Wow!! aren’t they delicious???

This is the pineapple I bought….so delicious!!!

Pineapple is a  remarkable fruit. The fruit is not only enjoyable to eat because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavour, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today. If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. The juice  helps to get rid of intestinal worms.

I’m always interested to look at how pineapple affects other conditions of our body system.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue.  A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount. It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.

Because of my passion in gardening I also break off the top portion of the fruit or some called it the “crown” and wrapped the bottom with some wet tissue and newsprint papers. I sprinkled the papers sparingly every alternate mornings to make sure they remain fresh. I plan to grow  them ( there are 2 stalks) on the ground of my home when I go back to Subang  Bestari. Don’t know yet whether  the soil in our area are suitable….

Healthy Eating of Vegetables and Fruits

Posted on Updated on

This is the last day of September. surprisingly I manage  to squeeze some  time, in fact couple of days to submit a few posts, something which I rarely have the time to do previously. However I have budgeted the time to research this subject as health, nutrition and weight management is  my main aim which set to achieve within the next 3 months!!!

Writing these posts means reminding myself that I am bound to follow what I write. Most importantly I must follow some quick tips religiously to maintain my ideal weight. ( My BMI has shot to 26! ) My ideal BMI is 25. Ooops!!! that’s quite high. Well I have to intensify my activities to burn calories and watch my diet. That means  loosing 7700 calories to lose 1 kg of  my body weight.  Sound’s like impossible to achieve. Like I mentioned in my previous posts I am not a person who like to diet. I eat what I like ,that’s the reason why I am what I eat… So, to get back my ideal  BMI I have to work hard in my weight management.

I am now starting  to draw line in my calorie intake and follow these quick tips on eating lots of vegetables and fruits by :-

1. Keeping my kitchen stocked with ingredients from the Healthy Eating Pyramid… concentrate on vegetables , fruits and protein. Always keeping  fruits like pineapple, strawberries, bananas, apple etc on the table and at the front rows in my fridge. This is one way I will always eat it.

2.Taking my daily meals by filling half the plate with vegetables of  other varieties.

3.Choosing vegetables and fruits that are packed with more nutrients and slow digested carbs.

4. Trying to cook a health recipe that always include pineapple that can be eaten raw, making a dish, or even snack.

5.Taking at least low-fat dairy products with less sodium as health snack like yogurt and fiber cereals.

I just made a pineapple recipe and  using strawberries which is a health snack.
