Pineapple - Wednesday, February 2

So I buy the big #10 cans of pineapple chunks at Costco. Especially in the winter when fresh fruit is so expensive. I eat it occasionally. What I love though is fresh pineapple.  I eat those a LOT in the summer!  SO GOOD!  Well, this time I bought some individual cans of Tropical Gold Pineapple. Same brand, Dole. I didn't think they would be much different.  Holy cow is this GOOD pineapple! It puts the regular canned pineapple to shame! It is still in 100% juice and no sugar added.  It tastes so much more like real pineapple and it was super sweet.  The 2 year olds didn't appreciate it at all, they didn't care. I'm totally keeping these cans for myself.  :-)  I ate a lot more fruit than I normally do today!

Today's Eats:

1/2 Banana = 45
Homemade breakfast burrito - 200
Pineapple, craisins, blueberries = 150
Lentil soup = 250
White Bean Hash = 360
Pineapple = 100

Total = 1105


  1. Love pineapple, especially fresh! I tried the packaged kind from the produce section once, and it's not the same.. I guess all pineapple is NOT created equal, LOL!

  2. I love fresh pineapple too. I only seem to want in during the warmer months though.:)

  3. I'm a huge fan of fresh pineapple too, so I'll have to check out the Tropical Gold stuff for wintertime. My favorite fruit ever is mangos and I love to mix chunks of mango with chunks of pineapple and mix in chopped parsley, mint, or cilantro. I call it Hawaiian sunrise and eat it as dessert or breakfast or a snack--so good! That white bean hash looks really good. Did you like it?
