Where can I find the best tasting healthy B-day cake?
If anyone can help, chowhounds can.
Please, thank you! Thank you! I appreciate it.
Healthy? That's a tough one.
Anyone can deem ANY cake as UNhealthy. Because even if you try a (let's say) naturally sweetened cake or a sugar free cake (doesn't really exist), it's still tons of calories and lots of simple carbs (which make your insulin level skyrocket, and therefore can be unhealthy to many).
Try Whole Foods. All clean stuff. No margarine, no transfats of any kind, no HF Corn Syrup, no artifical colors or additives. Still lots of sugar, but even a bowl of fruit will spike your insulin level. And, while whole foods is clean, they still use pasturized butter, which is very unhealthy. Might as well get a cake from some fancy bakery a la Susina, make sure they don't use margarine or HFCS, cut the slices nice and thin, enjoy, and not worry about it. My 2 cents.
Healthy meaning organic or natural that tastes good. Not meaning low fat or sugar free using artificial ingredients that may be worse.
I realize there is no such thing as a healthy cake so a healthier alternative to the traditional tons of egg, tons of sugar, tons of dairy.
Thank you for asking.
My friend wants to celebrate and one of her main goals to eat healthy. It is like having a organically grown steak with the fat trimmed off or taking the skin off of free range chicken. It is for her treat to go off her eating pattern yet making it healthy as it can be with it tasting good.
Does that makes sense?
