If you have been following me for a while now, then you know that I prefer nutrition over any other thing. But the flavor is also essential, and when those two things combine… BAM! I feel like I have accomplished my mission in life and with this blog.

When I tried this grilled pineapple, it made me so happy, and even more when the kids devoured it. They loved it.

But the best thing is that this isn’t just any regular recipe, you can change it and do whatever you want with it. For example, I prepared it with a little bit of chipotle pepper powder because I LOVE the smoky flavor that the chipotle pepper has. But if you prefer to use cayenne pepper, or chile ancho, or even cinnamon that’s good too.
