I love Whole Foods' Organic Whole Trade Pineapples! When they started to go on sale this spring, I decided to add them to my weekly shopping list and have used them daily for this delicious homemade juice recipe I designed. Its great at nourishing, replenishing, energizing, and stabilizing blood sugar.! I call it "Vitality Juice":) Heather's Vitality Juice 1/4 Whole Foods Organic Whole Trade Pineapple (skin removed) 1 organic zuccini 1 head organic romaine lettuce 1 organic lemon, peel removed 10 organic mini carrots 5 leaves organic red kale 1/2 a bunch of organic parsley 1 organic orange ( peel removed ) Process the pineapple, orange and lemon in a juicer. Scrape the pulp and set aside, leaving the juice in the juicing container. Process the zuccini, romaine lettuce, kale and parsley in the juicer. Pour the juice into a glass or glass bottle for future use. I like to put mine in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to get it cold or top it over ice fresh!:) Use the pulp by doing the following: Vegetable Pulp: toss well with your favorite spices and make a salad with and top with a red wine vinegar dressing, or mustard based dressing sprinkled with fresh minced garlic! I liked Simply Organic Herb and Garlic spice blend and Garlic Gold Italian Seasoned Gold Nuggets, both available at Whole Foods. Fruit Pulp: Stir well and mash. Add 1 ripe banana and mash if desired. Mix with 1 cup gluten free oats, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 cup sliced organic almonds, 2 tbsp. Stevita brand stevia, and 1/4 cup flaxseed, milled. Stir well until a "dough" is formed. If you need to, add a little water to get a doughy consistency. Spoon out into small "cookie" drops and bake on a nonstick baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees for homemade cookies:) Yum!

Pineapple skewers Cut up a whole pineapple and skewer it. Then roll one side in jello, whatever flavor you like, I prefer a red one. I think it just makes it nicer. Then eat! It is a simple and delicious desert!

Tropical Chicken Dinner - light and refreshing on the grill in spring/summer! wrap fresh pineapple, red peppers and green onions in foil. Grill about 20 minutes, until peppers and onions are tender. Grill boneless, skinless breast or tenders (rubbed with a Jamaican Jerk rub) until cooked throughout. Serve cooked chicken over basmati or jasmine rice, and cover with pineapple mixture! Whole process takes 20 minutes at most - only 6 ingredients for a complete, delicious, meal!!

MY recipe is simple and wonderful. Peel core and dice 1 whole pineapple. Place diced pineapple in a plastic or galss 1 quart container. Pour in enough vodka (any flavor) to cover diced pineapple. Let rest in refrigerator for at least an hour. You can strain off the vodka and mix in your favorite recipe or blend diced pineapple and vodka. Serve in a chilled martini glass. Nice addition to a light summer menu.
