I ate an entire pineapple for breakfast. It was a small one, but still. I don't even know what to make of it, myself. I've heard of others doing it and I've almost done it before, but today was the day I went all out. I didn't intend to, it just sorta happened.
It started when, instead of laying the pineapple on its side and cutting off the showy top then slicing it... I laid it on its side and cut off the showy top then stood it back up and took a large knife and carefully sliced all the skin off, downward.
Then I sliced all the pineapple away from the woody core, so I was left with long pineapple sticks.
I put these in a plate, took out a fork, and sat down at my computer.
I just adore pineapple, so it was wonderful, until I realized I'd eaten half of it so effortlessly. I started to remember things I'd heard about pineapples...acidic therefore bad for tooth enamel... brush your teeth or at the very least, rinse your mouth soon after eating some...some folks get a itchy or burning mouth and/or tongue from eating it...some folks' lips swell up...some folks get the runs, etc. All the fun stuff.
So I put the fork down and decided to wait a while to make sure I was OK.
After a while, probably 10 minutes, I started thinking of all the good stuff I'd heard about pineapples...bromelain...vitamin C...immune system superstar... and decided that I was fine, and finished the rest.
It's now almost midnight and I'm still fine...yay. I'm delighted to know that while I won't be making a habit of consuming entire pineapples in one sitting, that nothing bad happens if i do.
