    I have recently discovered the delight of pineapple with cinnamon sugar and grilled. As far as I am aware it is Brazilian in origin. Anybody else tried it or have a variant they like?

    Sounds delicious.

    In Hawai'i we ate pineapple with li hing - a Chinese salty plum powder. That is delicious, too.

    That sounds like it would be delicious on top of a baked ham.

    I will tell the husband to stop by the grocery store on the way home.

    Sugar on pineapple? I just can't imagine adding sugar to something that's already incredibly sweet. Ironically, I just came home with a fresh pineapple, so maybe I'll try just sprinkling cinnamon on it without the sugar.

    CINNAMON

    Blood Sugar Control

    Seasoning a high carb food with cinnamon can help lessen its impact on your blood sugar levels. Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating.

    Cinnamon's Scent Boosts Brain Function

    Not only does consuming cinnamon improve the body's ability to utilize blood sugar, but just smelling the wonderful odor of this sweet spice boosts brain activity! ...

    Research led by Dr. P. Zoladz and presented April 24, 2004, at the annual meeting of the Association for Chemoreception Sciences, in Sarasota, FL, found that chewing cinnamon flavored gum or just smelling cinnamon enhanced study participants' cognitive processing. Specifically, cinnamon improved participants' scores on tasks related to attentional processes, virtual recognition memory, working memory, and visual-motor speed while working on a computer-based program. Participants were exposed to four odorant conditions: no odor, peppermint odor, jasmine, and cinnamon, with cinnamon emerging the clear winner in producing positive effects on brain function. Encouraged by the results of these studies, researchers will be evaluating cinnamon''s potential for enhancing cognition in the elderly, individuals with test-anxiety, and possibly even patients with diseases that lead to cognitive decline.

    That's the better option, for sure. Grilling brings out the natural sugars already.

    Also: try this--before sprinkling some cinnamon on, soak the pineapple in some lower fat coconut milk
