Healthy Eating at Cake Time

One might think that a cake or equivalent thereto might be an unhealthy thing to be eating on a daily basis. Of course we would beg to differ out of sheer principle but today's offering clearly demonstrates that we are not beyond eating health - cake hour style.  The trick is to blend the healthfulness into something that will also satisfy our demanding tastes for goodies. Well what better way to do that than to serve up a fabulous strawberry shortcake cake from Whole Foods. You might think this is caloric and you might think there is too much fat per serving given all the fresh whipped cream. (Whipped cream is mostly air!) But given the way this is made there is at least a full serving of fruit in each portion so we satisfy our appetites and probably some minuscule daily dietary requirement for fruit.  And don't strawberries have magnesium or something like that. Yes this clearly shows you can have your cake and eat it too.

Stuffed with fresh fruit...ambrosia!
This cake was nicely wrapped and the strawberries were sliced and decoratively distributed around the cake giving it an artsy appearance. Don't you think?  The whipped cream was great and was nicely used to adorn the top. The big fat floral-like blobs made for some good eating for whipped cream fand if you lucked out and got a piece with one of them.  The key to the healthy aspect of this was the center of chopped strawberries that were not mixed in with the cream or some other filling. Hence we get a fresh fruit allotment and everyone's happy. This is, incidentally, one of the better concoctions that Whole Foods produces and we look forward to another one to keep our fruit intake going.
