Eating well can make a big difference in joint pain. Pineapple is loaded with bromelain, a blend of substances with the ability to fight inflammation and ease digestive woes. You can buy bromelain supplements, but these broiled pineapple rings make an excellent low-fat, vitamin C-rich dessert – and vitamin C is one of the many nutrients that supports healthy joints. Fresh pineapple is my first choice, but canned pineapple rings in light syrup work well, too.
