Making Cakes Healthier...

"Impossible!", I hear you say. Actually it's not impossible. Baking doesn't have to bad for you and healthy cake recipes don't have to taste bad either. Remember that when you first start substituting things in recipes, the flavour and texture of the end product may change slightly; keep an open mind, accept the change and soon you'll be reaping the health benefits. 1. Swap butter for low-fat spread As long as the spread you use is suitable for baking, it's a straight swap (no need to adjust measurements). I originally didn't like spread but now I can't bake without it and cakes made with butter are just too rich for me. Cakes will taste lighter and the amount of saturated fat in the cake will drop substantially: Win-Win. 2. Use wholegrain flour instead of white The texture will be much denser but your body will thank you for it. This was a change that I loved from the get-go. My cakes took on a slightly nutty flavour and became much more filling. I also found that I was feeling fuller for longer...so no more polishing off the whole cake in one sitting!! 3. Use fruit and veg in your cakes Yup - fruit and veg can add fibre and sweetness so you don't need to add as much sugar later. Plus, fruit is a great way to keep your baking moist. While I personally can't really accept using veg (excepts carrots in carrot cake obviously!), I've started using a lot more berries in my baking. Do you have any tips for making your baking healthier?

10 tips for healthy eating
Unlike what you can imagine, having a balanced diet is not such a difficult task. You need to follow three basic rules: consume variety, with quality and moderation. This is possible with discipline and awareness of what is really needed for your body. See the tips! Eat fresh foods Fresh or minimally processed foods, of vegetable origin, are the basis of a balanced diet. Include on the menu: beans, nuts, tubers, grains, fruits, vegetables and greens. Avoid excess salt, sugar, oils and fats Use salt, sugar, oils and fats in small amounts. Excessive sugar consumption contributes to obesity; the improper use of salt, oils and fats can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease. Avoid ultra-processed foods The natural manufacturing process for ready-made foods generally includes high amounts of salt, sugar, oils and fats. In addition, they also bring other substances for industrial use and synthesized in the laboratory from sources such as oil and coal, which do not favor a balanced diet. So, avoid consuming foods like: chips stuffed cookies cake mix instant noodles powder soup ready seasoning  soft drinks Consume functional foods Functional foods are those that help prevent or reduce the risk of some diseases. Soy and fish, for example, help to reduce bad cholesterol; chestnuts, almonds, walnuts, onions and garlic, help the immune system; cabbage, cabbage and broccoli can protect against some types of cancer. Include fiber in your diet Studies indicate that fiber-rich foods, such as brown rice, help reduce the risk of some types of cancer and cardiovascular disease. In addition, they promote satiety and help control body weight. Make a weekly menu Create a weekly plan with the week's menu. This will help to organize food throughout the days and avoid the consumption of ready-made and ultra-processed foods. Make grocery list With the weekly plan in hand, choose a day of the week to go to the fair and the supermarket. Make a shopping list to help you not include items in the cart that will not contribute to your health. Have a balanced breakfast Your healthy choices start in the morning with a breakfast consisting of foods such as whole grain bread, cereals, tapioca, egg, yogurt, cheese and fruit. In addition to nourishing the body, they will give you the energy you need to start the day in a good mood. Eat intermediate meals Eating every three hours favors the proper functioning of the intestine. Include healthy food such as fresh fruit, plain yogurt, nuts and walnuts in between meals. Mindfulness when eating Try to focus while eating your meals. Eating while watching TV or accessing your cell phone can make you consume more than necessary. Also, use that moment to feel the texture and flavor of the food and enjoy each bite. Conclusion Healthy eating should prioritize fresh or minimally processed foods As we have seen, the basis of healthy eating is the proper choice of foods and ingredients. Avoiding ultra-processed foods as much as possible and opting for food in its most natural form, respecting the regions and seasons of production and harvesting, is fundamental. Look for small producers in your region to buy your food. Make at home, as much as you can, the preparation of your meals. You will notice that, in addition to being healthier, there is nothing more delicious than food that tastes like home. Value the food you eat, because then you will be valuing your body and your health. “You are what you eat”, have you heard that phrase? So, review your eating habits to build a healthier and more positive relationship with food. You will gain in disposition, energy, quality of life and, we have no doubt, taste.

How Many Cups Are in a Liter: A Complete Guide to Measuring
How many cups are in a liter? We'll answer this question and help you master accurate measurement, so you never miss a recipe again. Cooking can seem easy, especially for those who don't do it themselves. It seems like you need to read the recipe, follow a few simple instructions, and that's it. So how come so many people fail? I will tell you a secret. It is not so easy to know how many cups in a liter. You can have the best recipe in your hands and still end up with a messy kitchen and your food in a trash can. Why is that? Many things can go wrong, but today I will deal with the measurement problems. Let us paint the picture - you found a great recipe online, read the reviews, and made sure it turned out great. Unfortunately, there is an issue: the recipe lists measurements that you are not familiar with, for example, cups instead of milliliters. In such situations, the US, imperial, and metric conversion tables are helpful as they direct you and assist you with setting up the formula the correct way. Or you can choose not to participate in another conversion calculator app. Very often, recipes call for cups of water or milk. In contrast, other recipes require you to measure your liquid ingredients in milliliters and liters. How many cups in a liter? We all know that recipes require precision. We have to measure ingredients accurately if we are to be successful. In addition to a reliable kitchen scale, it would be a good idea to have a set of measuring cups. As we stated, plans regularly call for cups of milk or water. Still, there are different types of cups. Sometimes, it is safer to measure liquid ingredients in millimeters, deciliters, and liters. In general, and reasonably roughly, one liter is usually considered to be about four average cups. However, the measurement differs a bit depending on the type of cups used. Still, you can measure how many cups in a half gallon using the same theory. There are the following types of cups: 1. Metric 2. US Customary. 3. US "legal." 4. Canadian 5. Imperial 6. Japanese 7. Traditional Japanese cups It is essential to know the metric, American and British or imperial system since that is what we find today. So, here we go: 1. The metric system • In the decimal measuring standard, 1-liter equivalents 1000 mL. One measurement cup rises to 250 ml. Without much of a stretch, you can figure the number of cups in a liter: 1000/250 = 4. Therefore, there are four cups in a liter in the metric system. 2. The American system • In the United States, we depend on the purported American cup to quantify fluids. 1 US cup has a limit of 236.58 ml or 8 US liquid ounces. One liter equivalents 1000 ml or 33,814 US liquid ounces. • The math is equivalent to in the past model: 33.814/8 = 4.22675. Therefore, there are 4.22675 cups in a liter in the American system. 3. For Imperial System (UK) • We often find recipes written for the UK audience; it is logical since we share the same language. Unfortunately, we don't share the same measurement system either. The British trust the imperial system. • An imperial cup has a capacity of 284,131 mL or ten imperial fluid ounces. One liter is equal to 1000 ml or 35.1951 imperial fluid ounces. That implies the math is as per the following: 35.1951/10 = 3.51951. As should be obvious, there are 3,51951 supreme flagons in a liter in the UK framework.
