I was at the library this week and found this interesting book by Janet Wright in the health section. It lists a 100 food, drinks, herbs and spices that have an impact on your health. There are six chapters that cover health improvers, detoxifiers and digestion, fitness enhancers, weight shifters, brain boosters and mood, and life lengthers. Each page features a food and gives the list of nutrients in that food along with the benefits of the food and a recipe to use.

For example pineapple contains vitamins B1, B6. C, copper, manganese and fiber. It also contains the enzyme bromelain which is an anti-inflammatory. Pineapple can help heal bruises and inflammation. It is also good for sore throats.
The recipe they give is for a pineapple salsa to be served with meat or fish
I have an 11 mile run tomorrow and may just go buy some pineapple to have when I get done to help with the muscle aches I'm sure I'll have.
