20 Facts About Pineapples

No, It’s NOT National Pineapple Day . . . I just thought I would share with you some information on Pineapples!

Pineapple Facts:
* The pineapple is native to Brazil and Paraguay.
* The first written record of the word "pineapple" in English was in 1398 and it was used to refer to a pine cone. It comes from the Spanish word for pine cone, "piña."
* Christopher Columbus found pineapples on the Caribbean island of Guadalupe in 1493 and took them back to Spain. The Spanish used the word for pine cone ("piña") for them because they resembled pine cones.
* After Columbus introduced them to Spain, pineapples became popular among sailors as protection against scurvy.
* The first pineapple arrived in England in 1660.
* In 1694, the term "pine cone" was created to refer to pine cones instead of "pineapple" in order to allow pineapples the sole use of the word.
* The Spanish introduced the first pineapples to Hawaii. The state is now one of the top pineapple producers in the world, producing one third of the world's pineapple crop and 60 percent of the world's canned pineapple.
* "Hala kahiki" is the Hawaiian word for pineapple. When Hawaiians first saw the pineapple, they thought it resembled the Hawaiian Hala, so they named it "hala kahiki," meaning "foreign Hala."
* "The Pineapple King," James Dole, started his first pineapple plantation in Wahiawa, Hawaii in 1900 and opened his first cannery in 1901.
* In 1911, Henry Ginaca invented the Ginaca machine that could peel and core 35 pineapples per minute, making canned pineapple much easier to produce. Before this, each pineapple had to be peeled and cored by hand. Because of this invention, Dole's pineapple canning business exploded and other pineapple canneries soon adopted the machine.
* In 2005, 212,000 tones of pineapples were produced in Hawaii.
* The Maui Pineapple Company is Hawaii's biggest pineapple producer. They began operations in Maui in 1909.
* Del Monte began producing pineapples in Oahu in 1917.
* In 2006, Del Monte announced that it would cease pineapple production in Oahu by the end of 2008 because they can produce it much cheaper in other parts of the world.
* Del Monte began growing pineapple in Oahu in 1917.
* The most popular pineapple sold in the United States is the Smooth Cayenne. The other three varieties sold in the United States are the Red Spanish, the Sugar Loaf, and the Golden Supreme.
* Pineapples take about 18 months to grow.
* One cup of pineapple has about 135 calories and 33% of the RDA of Vitamin C.
* A pineapple is ripe if one of its top leaves can easily be pulled out.
* You can't put fresh pineapple in Jell-O because the bromelain content prevents gelatin from setting. Canned pineapple, on the other hand, can be added to Jell-O because the canning process destroys the bromelain.

To answer your question about Slim fast here is what I would say. I think if you are looking for something to kickstart a process, get you off a holding pattern...or you have a goal you need to get to for something coming up in then next two weeks (someones wedding/dance/etc). I would do it. It is a great thing because it totally throws your body into a little shock and kicks your metabolism into gear...but it is not something IMO that you would want to do long term. I just don't think you learn proper nutrition that way and how to eat right for the rest of your life on a diet that way.

Now for me I have a slim fast every morning for breakfast. I do that because 1) I don't like breakfast..not a big breakfast eater unless it is brunch. 2) I don't believe that people should skip means, and I feel I need to have something 3) It is a good source of protein and fiber for me. 4) Low in calories and fills me up.

So there is my two cents.

Looking In On Members of Determination & Accountability! Leaving ya w/some motivation!

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe

"What you see is highly interrelated with who you are. You can't go very far in changing your 'seeing' without simultaneously changing your 'being' and vise versa. The way you see the world is a reflection of who you are." ~ Peter M. Shumba

“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” ~ Gail Devers

Have a healthy weekend!!!
