Okay I've got a couple of questions. Pineapple is a superfood for Nomads and it is also anti imflamatory. The question is does the value change if it is dried(got some nosugar dried at the HFS) or if it is grilled on the bbq? Question two, watermelon is a diamond. I planted some yellow fleshed watermelons. Will they still be a diamond? Question 3 just for lagniappe. I planted Thai Round Golden melons this year. The flesh is green. Any idea of the rating?

I buy canned pineapple and still notice good results from it.  I have to assume the rating remains in effect for the different forms.

Interesting question, as I don't know how the color change will affect the phytonutrient content.

I would put this under "Unrated = Neutral" for the moment.

Currently they have some good prices for fresh pineapple at Wally World, $1.97 each. That's not a bad price for fresh fruit. The blueberry picking orgy should start in a couple of weeks.  BTW I did plant some red meated watermelons also. Waiting on my first eggplant, currently the size of a goose egg and bound for the grill soon.

Cooked or canned pineapple does not have a tenderizing effect, as the enzymes are heat-labile.


Lose some bromelain, etc.

I think watermelon regardless of the color is still watermelon. And if red is beneficial, so is the
yellow variety... Everything I've read online about the different varieties and colors of watermelon has to do with the genes that control color, not much else.  In some parts of the world, the yellow watermelon is dominant and red would be a variant.  I also think pineapple whether dried or fresh,
canned or frozen is still pineapple.

Remember, the GTD book just gives lists of foods and in even in SWAMI, foods aren't listed according to the biological genus of a plant.. I found currants on my beneficial list and when I tried to actually buy currants in the health food store, realized what's labeled currants is actually a zante currant, a form of a raisin...not the biological genus, an heirloom plant called black currant.  Still, much is open to interpretation when specifics aren't given. Difficult to find heirloom seeds these days....Many of our fruits and vegetables available in stores are hybrid varieties and nutritionally different from plants of generations ago. Seeds have been tampered with by Monsanto and often genetically
engineered without any of us knowing what other food was spliced into the DNA of a plant....so not much anyone can do control this.

I think you'd be safe GCG with any form of watermelon, any form of pineapple as long as there
are no added sugars, preservatives or food dyes.  And that much better if it's organic!

That price on your pineapple is very good GCG! I buy one fresh organic pineapple every week, (I eat some daily), and I always pay more than that!

Had a few chunks of pineapple as Breakfast this a.m.
Perfect for when you just can't stand to take in starch.

how long do you wait until you eat fruit?

I had some about an hour after I ate dinner but I usually wait longer... was an hour ok?

I always eat fruit between meals as a snack. I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the time, though. It is probably at least an hour...

Thanks. I actually had a hard time sleeping after I ate the pineapple.. guess it was too much sugar for me. Typically, I do much better without much fruit.

I bought watermelon and pineapple and blueberries over the weekend and served them to company the other night with a crustless quiche - perfect light meal.....
I could eat pineapple everyday.  I just love it, especially at this time of year.
