Set Yourself Free with a Good Mood Fruit this Weekend

So how many of you folks like pineapple out there? 

You should, I mean, after all, a ripe one tastes deliciously sweet and fruity, and tropical-like sunshine. A good mood fruit.

And it’s really good for us: did you know that some of its numerous possible health benefits include aiding in digestion, acting as an anti-inflammatory agent, and helping reduce the pain of arthritis. It may also be an anti-clotting, anti-hypertension, and anti-cancer substance.

Well. 

There was a time before my divorced that I really enjoyed fresh pineapple–it wasn’t my favorite fruit, nonetheless, I really enjoyed a succulent bite or two especially on a warm day. 

The day I began my divorce proceedings, I decided that I didn’t like pineapple anymore because my ex-husband loved it– it was his favorite fruit. In my anger, disgust, and contempt at how he dragged out our divorce proceedings and the actual hell he put me through, I felt that I would be getting some kind of revenge by denying myself something that was healthy for me and tasted like sunshine to boot just because he liked it.

How could I possibly like something he liked, I reasoned. After a time, a long time, I came to realize what I knew all along and that was that I was physically and mentally free and that the time had come to replace my negative thoughts with… pineapple!

My joy has led me to a crazy discovery! I have found a way to eat pineapple– you won’t believe this–without cutting it. Grab yourself this good mood fruit this weekend and get some happy.
