5 Pineapple and Turmeric Recipes to Relieve MS Symptoms

Pineapple and turmeric are both strong anti-inflammatory foods. As a matter of fact, turmeric has been receiving a lot of attention in the MS research community for a long time for its possible neuroprotective properties.

Turmeric is most commonly used in curries, and finding ways to incorporate pineapple and turmeric into your diet can be difficult. Recipes for turmeric and pineapple juices and smoothies abound on the internet, but if you want something too substantial to drink through a straw, try one of these 5 pineapple and turmeric recipes to relieve MS symptoms.

Chicken Curry with Turmeric, Ginger, and Pineapple

from Arthritis Kitchen

This curry combines the gentle spice of turmeric with the sweetness of pineapple. You can make it spicy or leave it mild. Serve over brown or white rice. Or, make coconut rice by using coconut milk in place of some of the water when cooking your rice.

Golden Pineapple Rice


The turmeric in this recipe makes your rice bright yellow so it’s a beautiful side dish for a dinner. Or you can throw some meat and vegetables in with it and you’ve got a full meal.

Grilled Turmeric Chicken with Kohlrabi and Pineapple

from Gourmet Traveller

This recipe is a little fancier (it is from Gourmet Traveller after all), but it is worth the extra effort. Perfect for grilling season, but you can make it in the oven all year long. If you’re feeling less adventurous, skip the Kohlrabi. The grilled turmeric chicken and pineapple will be delicious with any side you serve.

Curried Shrimp with Pineapple

from Rachael Ray

This recipe is fast and easy, but so delicious. You get all the flavor of curry packed into a skewer of grilled shrimp. Serve with coconut rice or even the Golden Pineapple Rice mentioned above. Add a leafy vegetable, and you’ve got a powerful MS fighting meal.

Pineapple Turmeric Sauerkraut

from Fermented Food Lab

If you like sauerkraut, you will love this pineapple turmeric variety from Fermented Food Lab. It takes 4-7 days to ferment on your counter, but in the end you have fresh homemade sauerkraut. With all the benefits of fermented foods, plus the anti-inflammatory powers of pineapple and turmeric, this should definitely be on your must-try list.
