The cake is always the answer depending on how you look at it. Proper nutrition must be observed all the time because it is vital in maintaining optimal health. Our bodies need it to function properly, so we need to make sure that the nutrients we get from the food we eat will help us maintain a healthy body and help us sustain a long life.
Cakes can be made using flour and fruits as filling; margarine or butter for that rich and creamy taste; sugar to enhance its sweetness and appeal to kids; a liquid for mixing, eggs as a binder; leavening, for the dough to rise; and frosting, for added aesthetic appeal. By knowing these major ingredients, we can then get an idea of what nutrition a slice of cake has in store for us. Thank Us Later.
Cake can help you slim
Yes! You do have to eat it in the morning though, not your usual afternoon tea slot. It’s all about metabolism early in the day being more active than later.
Cake can help beat depression
Experts agree that baking helps give people struggling with mental illness a focus, structure, and a basic sense of achievement.
Cake has good things in it
Chocolate cake? Chocolate-y antioxidants. Carrot cake? Vitamin-y carrots. Coffee and walnut cake? Omega-3 oil-y walnuts. Sultana Scone? Sultana-y fiber. See what we’re doing here? Some cake ingredient PR. Try it; there’s always something you can spin as ‘a bit healthy.’
Cake has many guises
If you’re still not convinced that a slice of ‘normal’ cake is going to do you much good, you don’t have to opt out of the cake game completely. Just have an oatcake – the ultimate low GI, high fiber snack – or a fishcake – packed with memory-boosting Omega 3 – instead.
