i was the exact. same. way.pineapple was somehow more delicious when i was pregnant and i ate a lot of it towards the very end of my pregnancy in hopes of inducing labor... didn't exactly happen. haha but i DID get a numb tongue on more than one occasion!
@kandice, good to know... i love me some pineapple!
And then your tongue tingles.
We ate a whole pineapple this weekend too!! Yumm-o!! Nature's candy. :)
I love pineapple that's so fresh it practically burns! So good!
pineapple is my favorite fruit. fresh pineapple is a gift from the gods.
yes yes yes! it seriously is decadent and mouthwatering. and i've always thought so but ESPECIALLY now. it's just silly how obsessed w/ it i am.
I live on that, too. But I'm not pregnant. It's sooo good dipped in some cashew cream!
Oh my goodness, yummy!
Oh, YUM! So good.xo,Sarah
I know this may sound biased, but seriously, we have the BEST pineapple here on Maui. :) I am tempted to send you one so that you can reach this conclusion on your own!Funny how we all have different reactions to pineapple. Growing up, I couldn't do it...my mouth went numb and then I'd get a horrible rash. Fortunately, with a little forced-immunity in my adult years, I've trained my body to be a little more tolerant. And what a joy it is now, to be able to scarf my weight in pineapple with little consequences! :)
Right there with you sister friend. www.morganandlua.blogspot.com
me too!p.s. i read your all's love story the other day and just wanted to say..what. an. amazing. story! so awesome.
Love pinapple! It makes my tongue feel prickly if I eat too much.
you. are maybe my best friend that I've never met in person. honest to goodness. thanks for validating the nose picking. :)loving following along with the little peanut too...so exciting!
Me too! To cut the numbness I put a ton of whipped cream on top. Clears up that problem real fast!
well, i'm allergic to nutella yet i still eat it by the spoon full and then my tongue/entire mouth goes numb and maaaaybe swells up a bit.but i think your problem is a bit healthier.
mmmmm love pineapple!
pineapple makes my mouth hurt. but i eat it anyway.
seriously. nothing beats fresh fruit, especially when pregnant. I had the joy of inlawyas with a blueberry patch and my early pregnancy was just in time! I ate so many, I am surprised I didn't turn blue.
I totally agree with Megan.It's so good, I prefer the pain which ensues when I eat it, rather than the pain of not having it.If you mix it up with some strawberries and mango it's like heaven in a bowl!
so good! i wonder why it does that. i love pineapple with sliced bananas too. yum!
Did you know pineapple is supposed to be one of those foods that make you go into labor when you're 40 weeks and desperate? Like eggplant parmesean and castor oil (which is not a food, I know). So I've been avoiding it...but I love it so.
Papaya is the answer to your numb tongue. The enzymes in the papaya heal up the acid damage from the pineapple.
ah! my mom is the same way with avocado and mango. but she eats it anyways :)
hahahahahha true story! laughed out loud when i saw this. love is pain...love is eating a pineapple.xoxo
