We didn’t just pick the pineapple for our logo because we love drinking clean pina colada’s and they help us dream of lying on a beach in Hawaii.(well…..) We also chose it because it is the symbol of welcoming all. Blondes, brunettes, red heads, old, young, and everything in between! We love you all!!! Whether you are new to eating clean, don’t even know what it means to eat clean, or have been eating clean for years! If you want to feel your best, figure out ways to be super happy, and want to have fun and smile….you are our people.
A little pineapple history.
This esoteric fruit has long been a symbol of hospitality in the South & abroad. Early explorers to the West Indies & Americas learned that a pineapple placed at the entrance of a village meant all were welcome. This tradition continued with those who settled in the new land. Sailors would hang the fruit on their home’s door to signal their return from a voyage.
Soon, the iconic pineapple began to show up in popular culture, art, and even in architecture. Carolinians are accustomed to sleeping in beds whose headboards & posts are adorned with pineapple carvings. A guest in a Southerner’s home knows they’ve overstayed their welcome, it’s said, when the pineapple posts are removed.
So join us on our journey to health, happiness, and wellness. If there is something you have been dying to read about and we haven’t blogged about it yet…..shoot us an email at info@blondeseatclean and we will do our best to move it to the top of our list.
