It's summertime in West Texas which means it's hot. One food you can eat that is delicious and cool is pineapple. And while yes, it's refreshing and delicious did you know there are actual health benefits associated with consuming pineapple?

Brenda Duby with United Supermarkets stopped by today to discuss the health benefits of pineapples. According to Duby, pineapples are a great source of Vitamin C which also promotes skin health. Duby also said that pineapples contain manganese which can provide extra UV protection for your skin.

So, how should you eat pineapple? Easy. Throw some pineapple on the grill next time you cook-out or have it in a smoothie. You can get pineapples at all United Supermarket locations and if you need help picking one out, just ask for help!
