There's nothing better than the sunshine and a Pineapple smoothie! Now the temps are warming up it's time to pull out the pineapple and coconut water. Did you know the benefits of the two? The pineapple is a tropical plant with an edible fruit; it is the most economically significant plant in the family Bromeliaceae. Pineapple is rich in fiber and is perfect for your digestion and weight loss journey. These are just a few of the benefits of adding pineapple to your diet.

Rich in fiber its Enzymes aid digestion

May Speed Recovery after Strenuous Exercise
These are just a few of the reasons I love Coconut water, besides it being a tropical drink.
It first and foremost boost hydration. It's also low in calories and carbs and replaces the sports drinks that are filled with sugar and fake additives which you want to avoid during your wellness journey.
High in potassium(more than a banana! Say what?)
Low in calories
Cures a hangover(haha)
Kidney stone prevention
May reduce blood pressure and stroke risk
Now that I hopefully have you convinced to add Pineapple and Coconut water to your weekly diet, try it out and let know what you think!
