The pineapple in this recipe is excellent for digestion. Ever feel a little sluggish in that regard? Just have some fresh pineapple, which is rich in the enzyme bromelain which helps break down proteins.


Bromelain is also a potent anti-inflammatory and can help reduce sinus swelling and irritation, as well as other discomforts caused by inflammation.

I used a mix of greens here. Kale, spinach, and a bit of romaine. Use your favorite greens or what you have on hand. They’re ALL good.

All greens are full of vitamin K, which is excellent for bone health and also strengthens blood vessels.

Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes leafy vegetables so beautifully green. It develops when sunlight hits the leaves and is involved in photosynthesis … which basically turns the sun’s energy into yummy plant foods for us. Chlorophyll is also great for the skin and improves body odor. So does pineapple.
