The caloric content of this recipe was originally 235 calories with a sugar content of 30.5g. To make this a little healthier I reduced the amount of honey to reduce the sugar levels. I also substituted canned pineapple with butternut squash and soy sauce with Bragg's Liquid Aminos to reduce sugar and sodium content. The recipe provides 10 servings.
