Prego Palette: Pineapple

I'm, again, sharing some of my favorite morning-sickness food. There are a few things that I have been just bananas about, with my newfound temporary prego-palette adjustment (thank you, Lord, that I'm NOT a picky eater ALL of the time....this stinks!!). Let's talk pineapple.




I've been drawn to sweet, tart and tangy foods during this pregnancy and pineapple absolutely fits that bill! My major food aversions have been with buttery / creamy things, and certain preparations of meat. Honestly, the thought of an amazing filet mignon and truffle risotto just turns my stomach right now...it makes me cry. I miss my food so much.

Today, I'd like to share with you a simple trick my friend Lori taught me to ensure you always get a good pineapple, even if you bought an ok pineapple.

First, do the twist! Twist the spiky top off of the pineapple.


Ta da!


Then, place your pineapple upside down on a plate or bowl.


Let your pineapple sit upside for 2-3 days on your counter, and then slice and serve as you normally would. You'll get sweet, juicy pineapple every time!


In my case, I diced my pineapple into small individual serving cups. These have been great for staving off my ferocious prego appetite in between meals. As long as my stomach is full, I don't feel sick. Woot!




Cheers!

  1. What a cool trick! I want to buy a pineapple just to twist the top off :) I'm glad it's helped you feel better too!
