Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah!!! A new study out shows that eating cake for breakfast can be a good thing. Yup, is says that by eating cake for breakfast, just one piece, helps us feel full and we don’t have the cravings we do throughout the day, which lead to eating less healthy once we get to our next meal.
In the study, obese participants who ate a breakfast high in protein and carbohydrates that included a dessert were better able to stick to their diet and keep the pounds off longer than participants who ate a low-carb, low-calorie breakfast that did not include sweets.
The findings suggest that both meal timing and meal composition play a role in weight loss. Carbs and protein eaten at breakfast may keep us full throughout the day, plus allowing ourselves some sweets helps to stem cravings for these foods, said study researcher Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, of Tel Aviv University in Israel.
Can you believe this? Eating cake may lead to weight loss. I always knew cake for breakfast was a good thing. After all, cake is filled with eggs, flour, sugar, icing… all four major food groups. So it can’t be bad for us… right?
The cake pictured above is one of Elisa’s works of art. She made it for out potluck lunch for church yesterday. I’m so grateful that the good people of FCC focused on the other desserts that were there so we could bring her cake home. I had a piece shortly before I heard the good news about breakfast. I guess it was my second breakfast!
