Paleo Grilled Pineapple, A Tropical Dessert

This recipe for Paleo Grilled Pineapple is made with white cachaça. You’re probably wondering what cachaça really is. Well, it’s this wonderful liquor made from fermented sugar cane juice. If you can’t happen to find it, you can use regular clear rum or coconut rum would be good too. With Easter coming up on us and Lent ending tomorrow, what better way to celebrate Easter than with a treat?

This is going to be a good weekend. You know how sometimes, you can just tell? We had a nice chill night last night, a great workout this morning, powered by Diesel Crossfit, the house is clean and its time to relax. For many of you, this will be considered a Paleo cheat (or treat, as I like to call them), as it has both alcohol and sugar in it. I assure you, this recipe is Paleo though, so no worries.
