The pineapple is an all-round talent and this is mainly due to the enzyme bromelain: it helps symptoms such as bruises, bruising, sprains or pulled muscles to subside more quickly. The enzyme also makes protein-rich meals easier to digest and therefore more digestible. The blood-thinning effect helps to prevent thromboses, heart attacks and strokes.

For the vegan variant, the honey can be replaced by maple syrup. You can replace the yoghurt dip with a vegetable yoghurt alternative, for example on soya basis.
