Peter's Principle: The stem of the pineapple contains bromelain, which when juiced, provides the body with important enzymes helpful against arthritis. The enzyme in pineapple also helps digest protein. Uncooked pineapple is great with a protein sandwich, like chicken or turkey; it acts as a wonderful natural digestive aid.
Warning: Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness.
