Grilled Pineapples are a tasty and can be used for desert or anything in between. It doesn’t have to be summer either!! This can be done on a small grill at home and packs a nutritional punch.
Serve pineapple for dessert and no one will complain about missing sweets. That’s just one benefit of this delicacy. Moreover, its fiber will fill you up and might help keep you regular. Pineapple is also a sweet way to get your manganese, which is one of many bone-strengthening minerals and a star player when it comes to protecting you against free radical damages via its role in the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase. One cup exceeds a day’s recommended amount by 30 percent. You also get a decent amount of copper and thiamin, plus more than a third of your recommended vitamin C needs.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant, but it also helps keep your immune system in tip-top shape by increasing your resistance against colds & flus and other infectious diseases. Fresh, raw pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids digestion and helps prevent inflammation and swelling. To get the most anti-inflammatory benefit, some suggest that you eat pineapple alone so the bromelain isn’t used up digesting other food you’ve eaten with it.
We love having grilled pineapple at our house – it is delicious! During the summer when Hubby grills more we have it quite a lot. You can do this on an inside or outside grill. I think this winter when it is cold and gloomy I will make a tropical dinner one night and include this for dessert.
