more American every day

Yesterday I learned that in the US, pineapples are not “tinned” – they are “canned.”  I feel more assimilated every day.

Unfortunately, canned pineapples have lost most of what’s healthy about them:  the compound bromelain.  On the bright side, frozen pineapples, such as those I use to sweeten my green smoothies, do retain their full complement of bromelain.

Come over, and I’ll make a green smoothie for you.  Pineapples, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, kiwi, mangos, chia, home-made-yogurt, a date, maybe,  and a whole lot of greens … mmm good (for you)!

    I will vouch for Ashish’s smoothies. They are delicious.

    These sound great Ashish. I’ve made some clumsy attempts to make some green shakes in the past. And even those practice ones (stuff thrown together without any recipe) were not so bad. Good to know that frozen pineapple still retains the bromelin.
