    Charlie, try cooking your pineapple. I really like the taste and digest it well after slicing it an cooking it in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.

    I thougth all you hard-core Peatarians were so against Pineapple bc it's high tryptophan?.....Anyway,I love baked Persimmons at the moment which seems to have some good manganese as well.

    It's the serotonin that puts me off.

    Mmm cooked pineapple with salt and cinnamon (chased with cyproheptadine of course) tastes so good.

    Here is another RP quote on pineapple

    Serotonin content of pineapple is very high and just above
    banana, 17 mcg/gram vs 15 mcg/gm.
    I think 100-200 grams of pineapple falls within "moderation" range.
    It mostly depends on individual reaction to extra serotonin.
    RP also praised bromelain's anti-inflammatory property in one of the interview.
    This study shows serotonin content of some fruits and also mentions
    that large intake of serotonin rich plantain and banana in Uganda was implicated in
    some sort of disease.

    I sure which I could find lychees where I live. I can't even find canned ones! :(
    Personally I love pineapple, especially in an oj smoothie with greek yogurt, but sadly I don't do well eating it.

    I thought I read somewhere that the bulk of the serotonin was located in the core of the pineapple and maybe along the skin. So I think if you remove the core and a decent layer around the outside you should be right. I use canned pineapple all the time and don't seem to have a reaction.

    The proteolytic enzyme, bromelain, in Pineapple breaks protein and is widely
    used a meat tenderizer. It has the potential to cause stomach ulcer in susceptible
    people. Papaya and kiwi also have proteolytic enzyme.
    It seems like cocoa and tea are the safer choice for manganese.
    1 cup of black tea has 25 percent of RDA. RP mentioned that tea has
    estrogenic polyphenols but caffein in tea provides health benefits.
    I think RP does not directly recommend against tea.
    Home made chocolate seems like the best way to figure out if
    chocolate is the problem or other ingredients.

    How long do you cook them for? Apple pie was always a favourite of mine. Perhaps cooked apples + sugar could be something worth trying. Any Peat approved pastries lol (I want the pie)

    I just cook them to death in some butter or coconut oil. I usually add a bunch of sugar. It's perfect for breakfast (low water content+ lots of sugar) before my metabolism is ready for a lot of liquid.

    Do it!

    If you cook them properly, you can get the sugar to slightly caramelize. Amazing! Add to strained greek yogurt and you have a pretty awesome blend of macros - probably 60carb-20P-20F % wise
