#RaelEats: For when you’re cramping and irritated: Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Bowl

Cramps bothering you? Pineapples can help with that. They’re rich in manganese, which not only plays a key role in antioxidant defense, but according to certain studies can also help reduce cramps and mood swings from PMS. Pineapples also contain a special enzyme called bromelain, which is used in medications that help with certain types of inflammation and muscle soreness. As if pineapples weren’t sounding enough like your new best friend, they’re also high in thiamin (also known as vitamin B1), which is involved in energy production. This snack is going to make you feel as zingy as it tastes!
