In addition to being rich in vitamin C, pineapple is also bursting with manganese, a trace mineral that is essential for healthy bones, collagen production, and antioxidant defense. Pineapple also contains the digestive enzyme bromelain, which has been shown to help aid digestion, absorption of antibiotics, and decreasing inflammation. Add in a little bit of lean pea protein and healthy fats (thanks to cashews), and this light breakfast will keep you glowing and going all day long!
