I'm on a journey...... as we all are. Learning, remembering, re-discovering about health, spirituality, relationships, emotions and the mind.

Island Punch

1 Pineapple (top and skin removed, cut into spears)
1 pint Strawberries (washed and stems removed)
2 large sweet Apples (washed and stems removed)

Juice ingredients and enjoy.  The recipe suggests adding rum to taste, but I omitted it.  It was yummy as is, and the froth topping (naturally occurring) was very creamy.

Pineapple is a great source for bromelain (digestive enzymes), manganese and Vitamin C.  Bromelain is also a potent anti-inflammatory.

In addition to vitamin C, Strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.  They also contain significant levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which fight free radicals.

Apples provide boron (may help to have healthy bones), cellulose, and pectin.  When juicing the peel, you are retaining the great supply of Vitamin A that the apple carries.
