7 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating Pineapple

* 7 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating Pineapple.

For our purposes we’re gonna call- 7 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating Pineapple- a tale that bears repeating,

Give it a read.

* 7 Reasons Why You Should Be Eating Pineapple.

Long tale short,

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have been shopping at The Boys Farmers Market in Delray Beach for years.

For what it’s worth, I always noticed but never really paid attention to the fact- that all day long, it has a guy/gal in a certain area, cutting and bagging fresh pineapples.

Anyway, about 3 months ago, I did some research-on PINEAPPLE…suffice it to say, a real eye opener!

Down below is one of the articles I found….it kinda sums-up just maybe-why you should consider “adding” pineapple to your every day diet.

By the way, no bs-here, for the past 3 months- I’ve been eating a cup or two of fresh pineapple on a daily basis- and not even once, have I had a bout-of indigestion- which prior to my pineapple “regiment” use to hit me at least 2-3 times a week!

7 reasons why you should be eating pineapple

Pineapples are one of the most popular fruits in the world and it is great that they are available all year round. They have exceptional juiciness and a vibrant tropical flavour that balances the taste of sweet and tart but most importantly, they are healthy and nutritious. Below are more reasons to love the pineapple fruit.

1-They build and maintain strong bones
Pineapples contain manganese which is a trace mineral your body needs to build bones and connective tissues.

2-They are packed with Minerals and Vitamins
Pineapples are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, Calcium, potassium and phosphorus. They are also rich in fibre and low in fat and cholesterol which promote good health.

3-They help maintain gum health
Eating pineapples daily helps strengthen your gums which in turn will help keep your teeth healthy and strong.

4-They help alleviate Arthritis
Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties which can ease the pain of arthritis while at the same time strengthen bones.

5-They help lower the risk of Macular Degeneration
Macular degeneration is the primary cause of vision loss in adults. Including pineapples in your diet can lower the risk of this disease by about 36%.

6-They Improve digestion
Pineapples contain Bromelain which has protein digesting properties that keep the digestive tract healthy. They also neutralize fluids in the body to ensure they are not too acidic. They also help regulate secretions in the pancreas to aid in digestion.

7-They help prevent coughs and colds
Pineapples are rich in Vitamin C which gives them the ability to fight viruses that cause colds. Eating pineapples combined with the right medication for your sickness can help you recover more quickly.

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you, Pizza Time is a terrific mom & pop red sauce Italian joint! If you live, play, work anywhere near Pizza Time- do yourself a gigantic favor and give the joint a shot! By the way, I picked Pizza Time’s chicken parm just to get the discussion going- I’ve been eating there for years and can’t recall even one time when its food wasn’t absolute dynamite!

Real simple story to tell you guys…

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats got some family (two cousins on Mrs. Jeff Eats’ side of the family) visiting from New York. Now, I’m not counting anybody’s money but- they must have some cash, because they are staying 5 nights in a huge suite at the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton (which ain’t exactly a chopped liver “situation”) during “Christmas Week” down here in Sunny South Florida…

Anyway, last night “we” got together and Jeff Eats knowing I/he was going to be picking up the check- took them to Pizza Time which is one of my favorite-reasonably priced “mom and pop” red sauce Italian joints (which by the way is 3 minutes from the Boca Raton Resort and Club) for dinner!

Not much more to tell you guys, other than Jeff Eats has been eating at Pizza Time since 2008, the joint makes outrageously delicious food and it’s probably no more expensive than your favorite “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint! For those of you who maybe wondering- large cheese pizza, veal parmigiana, chicken parmigiana, veal marsala and meatballs & spaghetti- and like I said before, outrageously delicious food- and Jeff Eats didn’t have to “consult”- an ATM Machine to pay the bill!

If you haven’t eaten in Pizza Time in Boca Raton…GO! You will really-really enjoy this joint!

Pizza Time is open, Monday-Saturday 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM, Sun 12:00 PM – 10:00 PM.

Do me a favor and read the writeup (June 30, 2008) that I did on Pizza Time (Coral Springs). Go ahead, I’ll wait…

Rather than rehashing the details…suffice it to say, that the guy who originally owned the Pizza Time in Coral Springs sold the joint and has now “resurfaced” in Boca Raton (in what was formely Sal’s Italian Restaurant) in a new Pizza Time.

This “newest” Pizza Time is terrific. It is as good as the original Coral Springs’ joint. Great pizza, pastas, meat/seafood/chicken entrees.

Pizza Time is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

If you live in Coral Springs you probably know all-about Pizza Time…the joint is or should be a landmark.

Rather than beating around the bush, Pizza Time is one of the best “mom and pop” Southern Italian Red Sauce joints in all of South Florida. There is nothing fancy whatsoever about Pizza Time…terrific pizza, pastas, fish-seafood, chicken and veal-meat entrees. Good prices.

This joint is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. While you are waiting to get in, checkout the takeout business that Pizza Time does. Pizza Time’s website is at www.pizzatimeinc.com.

By the way, in Parkland there is a joint called Pizza Time Caffe, 6620 Parkside Drive, Parkland Florida (954) 345-8665. Rather than going into lengthy detail (because I have forgotten the whole story), this joint was in the past somehow connected/related to the original Pizza Time Italian Restaurant, but isn’t anymore. Anyway…I just wanted to let you know, that this Pizza Time Caffe isn’t half-bad. As a matter of fact it was pretty good the 2 times that I tried it. So you now have two joints for pizza etc., in the Coral Springs/Parkland area to choose from…the Pizza Time Caffe website is at www.pizzatimecaffe.com.

Peter Noone is a multi-talented entertainer, who has been delighting audiences nearly all his life. He was born in Manchester, England, where his career began as a child star in British soap operas and several popular television series.

At the age of fifteen, Peter achieved international fame as “Herman”, lead singer of the legendary pop band Herman’s Hermits. His classic hits include: “I’m Into Something Good”, “Mrs. Brown, you’ve Got A Lovely Daughter”, “I’m Henry VIII, I Am”, “Silhouettes”, “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat”, “Wonderful World”, “There’s A Kind of Hush”, “A Must To Avoid”, “Listen People”, “No Milk Today” and “The End of the World”. Ultimately, Herman’s Hermits sold over fifty-two million recordings. In all, fourteen singles and seven albums went gold.

Call…1-888-718-4253 for tickets

As “Herman”, the photogenic Noone graced the cover of nearly every international publication including Time Magazine. He performed on hundreds of television shows and appeared with such luminaries as Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Dean Martin and Danny Kaye. He was cast as the engaging “Duke of Cheshire” in ABC’s musical version of The Canterville Ghost and portrayed the title role in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s Pinocchio. He also starred in three highly successful feature films for M-G-M: Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, Hold On! and When The Boys Meet The Girls.

With characteristic zeal, Peter took on leading roles in full-scale theatrical productions in the UK and the US. In the eighties, Peter starred on Broadway in the New York Shakespeare Festival’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance. He won rave reviews for his superb portrayal of the dashing, young hero, “Frederic”. Peter’s acting career flourished with guest-starring roles in prime-time television series such as: Married With Children, My Two Dads, Dave’s World, Easy Street, Too Close For Comfort, and Laverne and Shirley. In a memorable episode of Quantum Leap, he shed his “nice guy” image to portray “Dwayne”, a scheming promoter with murderous
intentions.

The 1990s found Peter embarking on a four-year stint as the winsome host of VH1’s My Generation, the highest-ever-rated half hour retrospective of pop/rock music. More recently, he was featured in the recurring role of “Paddington” on the CBS daytime drama, As The World Turns. He began the millennium with his successful entry into cyberspace and the New York Daily News dubbed him “The King of the Sixties on the Internet” due to the overwhelming popularity of his websites: peternoone.com and hermanshermits.com.

Accompanied by his band, Herman’s Hermits, Noone currently performs over 200 concerts a year. He consistently plays to sold-out venues and his admirers span the generations. Today’s teen girls scream just as passionately as their mothers did back in 1965, prompting VH1 to select Noone as their viewer’s choice for the “Sexiest Artist of the Year”. There is no doubt that Peter Noone’s extraordinary talent, disarming wit, handsome features and compelling stage presence will continue to delight fans of all ages, for a long, long time to come.

Posted on February 9th, 2011

***** Dragon Gourmet Buffet, 1091 South University Drive, Plantation, Florida 33324, (954) 423-8088.

The “name” may throw you off…the words “Chinese”–“Japanese”–“Asian”–“Fusion” are nowhere to be found. So there is no confusion, Dragon Gourmet is a Chinese-Japanese-Asian-Fusion buffet-joint in Plantation.

This one is a KEEPER. Clean…good food…huge and I do mean HUGE selection of stuff (didn’t count– its website says that there are 200 different items)…very reasonable prices, figure max 16 bucks a head (it all depends when you get there). You can check menu/prices/photos at www.dragongourmetbuffet.com.

Over the past few months, I’ve done 1-dinner and 2-lunches…the food was consistently good. On all of the “outings”…Dragon was busy and the food was constantly turned-over, which is IMPORTANT when you are talking buffet. Just think of what freshly made fried chicken tastes like after its sat in a heated steamed “chafing” dish for 45 minutes or so (but that”s a Golden Corral story for a whole-nother day).

To be perfectly honest with you, Jeff Eats is a big-fan of buffets. Can’t remember, the last one that I didn’t enjoy. May need a psychiatrist to figure this one out, but just looking at mounds and mounds of food just-sitting-there-for-the-taking, gets me going.

If you are a fan of Chinese-Japanese buffets, I think that you will really like this one. Special shout-out to the General Tso’s chicken, pan fried dumplings, egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken.

Dragon is open Monday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 11am-9:30pm.
