Can cake be healthy?

Dessert, Dessert Cake, Carrot Cake, Food

Fast food has taken over the dinner and Bee Cave Wildlife Removal, as it is so easy to let someone else do the baking and cooking for you. The problem is that these fast food options are full of calories, fat, and preservatives, and they just aren’t healthy for you. People should really stop eating so much fast food, and turn to healthy options like… healthy cake!
That’s right, I said”healthy cake” There truly is such a thing, a cake which may be healthier for you than the premade mix that you pick up from the bakery department of your local grocery store.
“Wait a moment,” you’re saying,”if I want to eat healthy, I’ve got to cut cake out anyways.” That isn’t always true, though. If you play your cards right, you can always include sweets in some moderation into any diet, even the renowned Weight Watchers diet. In the end, you can check the Weight Watchers section of your local grocery store and see their own options for desserts (but these have the very same preservatives which are bad for you and we want to avoid!)
You will find recipes galore for healthier cake, including an absolutely scrumptious gingerbread cake made with real molasses, with cream cheese oozing down the sides. Believe it or not, a single serving of this delicious cake will have less than 200 calories and no preservatives, something difficult to find at a commercially baked cake! Or, how about a home-baked chocolate lava cake, also with les than 250 calories? Let’s get really mad, though, and consider adding a healthy dose of almonds into a cherry cake for a cake that is in fact nutritional, filled with vitamin E, unsaturated fat, and fiber!
While you might not be able to buy these cakes in the store, the memories that you will pass along to your children are worth the time it might require you to bake the cake. The art of baking is, alas, becoming a missing one… but that can change if you include your kids in the baking process! As you learn, so do they, and they can then pass along their baking skills to their children. Teaching your children how to make wholesome cake can help them not only be healthier, but to know how to cook healthy.
On a personal note, I always try to replace white sugar with carrots, coconut sugar, sucrin or even add some fresh berries on top of the recipe and leave out the unhealthy sugar completely in my cakes and bakery. Sometimes I even add fresh figs in the recipe to make it sweeter, and I can honestly say, that I do not miss the white sugar in my entire life.
You don’t have to treat yourself to fast food desserts, with these available. Many of them can probably be whipped together in less time than it takes you to drive to the fast food joint, wait at the drive through, and then drive home with your reheated-from-frozen, preservative-laden fast food dessert. Healthy cake might be the next fad, so add it to your menu today. In Denmark, where I’m from it is quite common to eat healthy cake like this healthy carrot cake recipe.
