Are you in for a naturally sweet and organic treat with Whole Foods Markets’ Whole Trade Pineapples! “Mom” just received some of these large, juicy and perfectly ripe pineapples to taste, and my oh my – what a difference an organic pineapple can make as compared to its conventional counterpart! Hailing from Costa Rica, Whole Trade Pineapples are delectable, sweet and juicy (so juicy, in fact, you can pour the juice left on the cutting board into a small cup to savor!). The pineapples are grown on farms that keep the health of the planet high on their priority lists, and Whole Foods Market Whole Trade Guarantee ensures that you enjoy the best-quality tropical treat, delivered at peak ripeness.

Mom’s” family originally was going to make an organic chocolate fondue with the pineapple as the main fruit to dip, along with bananas and strawberries, BUT the pineapple was so amazing that it was eaten off the plate before the rest of the fruit was cut or the fondue was made!

Whole Foods Markets offers some tantalizing recipes that showcase the pineapples beautifully, including the recipe below for Mahi Mahi Pineapple Skewers with Tomatillo Salsa.

Mahi mahi is at its best grilled hot and fast. That said, you could just as successfully use chicken, pork, tofu or shrimp in this recipe.

Mahi Mahi Pineapple Skewers with Tomatillo Salsa

Ingredients

1 (12-ounce) package frozen mahi mahi, thawed and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup frozen and thawed or fresh pineapple chunks
1 green (or red) bell pepper, cut into chunks
Salt and ground black pepper
1 package corn tortillas
1 cup tomatillo salsa, divided

Preparation

If using wood or bamboo skewers, put in water to soak 30 minutes. Preheat oiled grill to high heat. Alternate fish, pineapple and peppers on soaked skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place skewers on hot grill and cook 3 to 5 minutes, turning once. Do not overcook! Wrap stack of tortillas in foil and place on grill to warm. Remove skewers to plates. Use tortillas to pull fish, pineapple and peppers from skewers as you eat, drizzling each bite with salsa.

Serves 4.

These muffins contain flaxseed, which is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and a good source of dietary fiber. Although flaxseed is available whole or ground, it is believed that ground flaxseed provides the better source of nutrition. In addition to incorporating this nutritional powerhouse into baked goods, ground flaxseed can also be sprinkled on cereal or yogurt.
