Pineapple souffle

I first tried this dish at my mother-in-law's house on Thanksgiving when Ryan and I were dating in college. When I dug into Diane's pineapple soufflé, I couldn't get enough of the sweet and buttery flavors. It felt more like a dessert than a side dish and I couldn't help but go back for a few seconds… then thirds. It's by no means healthy, but for a dish you only enjoy once a year, I just can't force myself to try “healthy” this recipe. It's now a Thanksgiving classic in the Fagan house!

A healthy diet includes a lot of natural foods. A sizeable portion of a saine diet should consist of fruits and vegetables, especially ones that are red, orange, or dark green. Whole céréales, such as whole wheat and brown rice, should also play a part in your diet. For adults, dairy products should be non-fat or low-fat. Protein can consist of lean meat and poultry, seafood, eggs, beans, legumes, and soy products such as tofu, as well as unsalted seeds and nuts.

Good nutrition also involves avoiding certain kinds of foods. Sodium is used heavily in processed foods and is dangerous for people with high blood pressure.

Also, you may have nutritional deficiencies due to certain health or life conditions, such as pregnancy, or certain medications you may be taking, such as high blood pressure medications. People who have had intestinal diseases or had sections of intestines removed due to disease or weight loss surgery also may be at risk for vitamin deficiencies. Alcoholics are also at high risk of having nutritional deficiencies.

One of the most common nutritional deficiencies is iron deficiency anemia. Your blood cells need iron in order to supply your body with oxygen, and if you don’t have enough iron, your blood will not function properly.
