Healthy Pineapple Fried Rice
RE-EVALUATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD
Our food philosophy is based around the belief that Mother Nature knows best. While we don’t believe in a totally raw food menu, we do believe in the benefits of low human intervention food [Low HI], where the food has undergone no (or minimal) changes from its place in nature to your plate. For example, a piece of sweet potato on your plate may have been steamed or roasted but is still recognizable as a sweet potato the way it came from the Earth. With our recipes, we like to focus on freshness and flavour! Learn how to truly nourish your body with fresh and flavoursome food on a Yoga Goddess Retreat.
This healthy pineapple fried rice is a sweet and savoury, vegan and gluten free version that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare!
Plus you can serve it inside a pineapple to feel like you are in Bali! (and impress all your friends!)
Pineapple’s have so many health benefits! This anti inflammatory and immune boosting fruit is rich in Bromelain, which works as an anti inflammatory for muscle sprains and sporting injuries, as it breaks down fibrin that causes scar tissue.
+ Plus it is high in vitamin C, which stimulates the activity of white blood cells to boost the immunity system and fight off colds and viruses!
