The fourth of July is one of those unofficial holidays that I really don't get into. I tend to dread the illegal firework procession that sounds like I’m living in a war zone. However having a blog allows me to unofficially celebrate with you by sharing beautiful pictures and ideas.
In all my years of experience with pineapple I never knew that to get the benefits of this fruit you have to cut it away that keeps the core intact. Bromaline is an enzyme that is found in the core of the pineapple. It thins mucus, improves cardiovascular health, speeds wound healing and aids in digestion.
I prepared this fruit platter for my unofficial Fourth of July celebration, however if you are headed to a barbecue or hosting a celebration of you're own make a fruit platter. The rules in the culinary world state that the best fruit platters are to be arrayed with at least five different fruits.
Now to the giveaway the rules are simple, to be eligible you have to sign up or have already signed up for my newsletter, my newsletter is located in the upper right hand corner of my sidebar. Then leave a comment! I am giving away a brand new copy of Matthew Kenney's Everyday Raw Express.
This photo is a special one in that it was taken for me in Jamaica !
