  1. HI,

    I thought brown sugar and vegetable oil are not healthy? Do you have a list of what is okay and what is not okay about sugar oil and etc?

    Thanks!

      Hi Kelly,

      Thanks for reaching out! All of our recipes are checked and approved by a registered dietitian to ensure they meet USDA guidelines for a nutritious diet. For the recipe, you can certainly switch out the vegetable oil with another type of oil that you prefer (olive, avocado, coconut). While all oils do contain fat, vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn, cottonseed and soybean oils, are rich in a type of fat known as linoleic acid. That acid can lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol when it replaces saturated fats in the diet.

      For sugar, this recipe doesn’t contain any added sugar. The recipe is a little higher in sugar that we would normally recommend, but that sugar is coming from the pineapple and mango in the recipe. While sugar is sugar even when it comes from fruit, the sugar in fruit comes with added health benefits like fiber, vitamins and minerals. For example, this recipe contains 69% of our recommended intake of Vitamin C!

      With all foods moderation is key. We always strive to include fruits and/or veggies with every meal.

      Thanks!

  2. Very good! I made a half-recipe for the two of us and we enjoyed it. Next time I will try it without the cinnamon.
