Eat Pineapple, it's Tax Day! / by Karen Mastrangelo

Taxes cause undo stress as they feel like wealth is being taken away from us.  This is why I eat pineapple on Tax Day.

The pineapple in Chinese culture symbolizes wealth, prosperity and fortune.  The Chinese word for "pineapple" in translation means "good luck has arrived," and is said to help accumulate abundance for your home and business. 

Pineapples are actually nature's display of the gathering of wealth! Pineapples are actually not just a single fruit, but instead a combination of many flowers' individual fruitlets that have fused together around the central core.  This golden collection created is referred to as an infructescence. 

Antioxidant rich, pineapples are an incredible source of Vitamin C, which protects the body from free radicals that can lead to a variety of health concerns.  Pineapple is also a source of important vitamins and minerals, and is the only known source of the enzyme called bromelain, which is effective in alleviating joint pain, arthritis, reducing inflammation, inhibiting tumor growth and shortening recovery time following surgery. 

This Tax Day, feed your health and Taste Gold!
