I love sweet and sour anything, and when you can get this fabulous flavor in a crock-pot/ slow cooker meal and it's good for you too - well, make this recipe soon.
Pineapple is loaded with vitamins and minerals. The obvious benefits of pineapple are all the vitamins and minerals the fruit is loaded with. Its nutrients include calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C. In addition it is low in fat and cholesterol.
Pineapple strengthens bones because they are rich in manganese, a trace mineral that is needed for your body to build bone and connective tissues.
Pineapple is Good for Colds and Coughs as the Bromelain, which is found in pineapples, has been found to help suppress coughs and loosen mucus.
The benefits of pineapple can be achieved through eating fresh, canned, or frozen pineapple or by drinking its juice.

Wellness Tip
Are you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit?
How to use Fruit Labels to know when you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit. As much as we may dislike them, the stickers or labels attached to fruit speed up the scanning process at checkout. Cashiers no longer need to distinguish a Fuji apple from a Gala apple, a prickly pear from a horned melon, or a grapefruit from an ugli fruit. They simply key in the PLU code - the price lookup number printed on the sticker - and the market's computerized cash register identifies the fruit by its PLU. The numbers also enable retailers to track how well individual varieties are selling. For conventionally grown fruit, the PLU code on the sticker consists of four numbers. Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 9. Genetically engineered fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 8. So, a conventionally grown banana would be 4011, an organic banana would be 94011, and a genetically engineered banana would be 84011.
