via Daily Prompt: Luxury

Yes food is a luxury, especially home cooked, good for health kind of food. Most people have forgotten the art of cooking from scratch.

Well I make home baked cakes the good old style from scratch. No self raising flour and no pre-mixes either. I make use of all the measuring cups that people hardly have use for any longer.

What’s the benefit?images

My cakes have all the good nutrition in them. I selectively add high quality fruit like black currents which are very good for health and the antioxidants found in blue/black foods are very effective against many of the common diseases we face today. Figs are another ingredient I use most of the time. Freeze dried strawberries, raisins, dates, cashew nuts and walnuts are my main ingredients. You can check the health benefits of each one online and you’ll come up with astounding insight and knowledge.

The health angle

Cakes that are made with less sugar or you could even put in a request for cakes with no sugar which I make with honey. These are excellent for those with a sugar problem. For those who are on medication and not insulin dependent. So you can enjoy low sugar cakes from Home Bake Gurgaon. If you are on a fat free diet and trying to avoid all foods that could add to your calories or fat content then you can have the low fat cakes.

No icing? FullSizeRender_6.jpg

Is icing good for you? Most people don’t realize how bad it is for you. In fact commercial bakeries are using a chemical ingredient for icing that allows it to retain he beautiful shape without melting even in quite high temperatures. When you learn how bad it is for you, you’ll never eat commercial iced cakes again.Now most commercial bakeries have thick layers of icing in between and very little cake. The.propylene glycol

Just imagine what all those chemicals are doing to you. Propylene glycol does not cancer, but it causes skin problems like eczema, liver and kidney damage. This is just for health awareness only. Homemade whipped cream icing or icing made of good ol’ icing sugar is he right kind of icing one should indulge in. Do not mistake the propylene glycol icing as whipped cream…

Sweet tooth craving

Craving
Ah many folk suffer the sweet tooth craving and I am just one among the countless millions. There is nothing wrong with eating sweet food. Sugar comes from sugar cane in most parts of the world and from dates in some parts of the world. The way I see it is that both sugar cane and dates are good for you.

Cakes and pastries is another craving that many people have..Cakes can be healthy if your eating low fat cakes. Calories is what most people are counting, even though I can bet you 90% of them have no idea how to count calories.

If you are diabetic then try low sugar cakes. Now no one can accuse you of indulging in what you shouldn’t be eating. When eating cakes just stay away from the icing – that is the unhealthy part.

Commercially made cakes are mostly icing and very little actual cake. You should opt for dry fruit cake. The raisins and dates and other dry fruit are good for your health and the cake comes without icing. The health of eating is eating the cakes and other sweets the right way.

Eating Right

On the other hand street food – what a lot of us consider unhealthy or unhygienic is healthier that restaurant food

What we eat defines not just our health and well being but also the state of our mind. When you eat healthy food you feel invigorated and you mind is energized.

Isn’t this what we all want? We want the result, but it comes with some discipline. Eating healthy is easy – limit your intake of outside food. Eat at home. Whatever is prepared in your kitchen will give you some nutrition.

Eating out

The basic idea behind eating at home is to prevent putting garbage inside your body. You have no idea what goes into restaurant food. If you did you would never eat out again.

What say you about street food?

On the other hand  street food – what a lot of us consider unhealthy or unhygienic is healthier that restaurant food. This applies for food that is being cooked in front of you only. Like parathas or egg and bread. Food that is prepared elsewhere like biryani you should probably stay away from.

Yummy Fast food

McDonalds, YoChina, KFC and many more, your mouth starts watering at the sound of these names. All fast foods are synonymous with cancer, diabetes, heart disease – so let’s reassess what we are tempting our children with. With all the temptation around it is hard to resist – so lets cut down the consumption to once or twice a month. If you’re on a total home food diet your system will get rid of all the toxin in these foods right away. So you are safe, but don’t over do it.

What about cakes?

In general pastries should be prepared at home or avoided from commercial bakeries. The icing used for these cakes is very unhealthy – it is not cream but made of chemicals.

At Home Bake Gurgaon all our cakes are made at home. Over and above that we use healthy ingredients. We also have our healthy line of foods like low fat cakes and low sugar cakes. The cakes do not have icing, but are filled with fruit and nuts depending on the variety.
