2016: The Year of the Pineapple

The New Year is almost upon us!

Many of us have prepared for 2016 by drafting new year’s resolutions. And you know what? I agree with the tradition. There really is something magically inspiring and motivating about resolutions! In fact, down here on the farm, we have a few “new beginning” traditions and customs that we follow on December 31st.

Among them are some fun ones such as crossing the neighborhood street with a suitcase in hand to ensure travelling in the coming year. Or sweeping the entire house to sway away past evils. Many people here in Costa Rica even make it a point to ring in midnight with yellow underwear for good luck in the months ahead.

Maybe these customs aren’t exactly your cup of tea, but there is one thing you can’t deny: Taking steps to better yourself is always a smart thing! Among your own resolutions, we’re pretty certain that “eating better” or “making healthier choices” is on your list. And that’s terrific!

So, alright then. In 2016, introduce more fresh produce to your diet! We’re partial of course, but pineapple will really be a great addition to your fruit basket this year. As the year continues, check Lloyd’s Corner for more reasons on how this star food can help you. (Can’t wait? Check out a few health posts from 2015 here, here and here.)

Without further ado, from our family to yours:
