How Can Spicy Pineapple Slaw Make You Feel Great?
Pineapple SplashJust looking at a pineapple can brighten your mood. Its eccentric outer form and deliciously bright interior is perfect to serve at a party. As soon as it hits your lips, you'll begin to salivate a little more due the sour taste, enhancing digestion and increasing the absorption of nutrients. Let the sweetness of the juice burst with each bite, leaving you feeling energized and refreshed.
Treat for the EyesNot only is this dish a treat for the eyes due to vibrant yellow of the pineapple flesh, streaks of orange carrot and delicate greens of cilantro, it actually benefits the eyes too! Cabbage and carrots are both a rich source of beta-carotene, known for its ability to reduce muscular degeneration and promote eye health. Beta-carotene is metabolized into Vitamin A which pacifies Pitta and protects the surface of the eye, reducing the risk of eye infections.
Balance AcidityBalance acidity with 'Spicy Pineapple Slaw'. The addition of lime juice, fresh ginger and cilantro add crisp and cleansing elements, reducing acidity, stimulating digestion and flushing toxins due to their light, easy to digest and balancing effect on all doshas. You'll feel cooler and calmer. Substitute the ginger with fresh galangal for a more Asian feel to the dish.
