Default Carrot Cake

Is Carrot cake or carrot muffins better for you than regular cake?

Oh man! I wish that carrot cake was healthier than other cakes, but no...sadly it's not really any better for you. Yeah, you're adding carrots to the mix, but the trouble is that so much other bad-for-you stuff goes in there that it cancels out any benefits you'll get from the carrots.

Actually Anne, there are a lot of really great healthy carrot cake and carrot muffin recipes out there that are half the calories of normal carrot cake as well as more nutritious. Best of all, they don't taste "healthy" haha. You'll find lots of recipes online. As a tip for when you're looking, choose one that requires you to make the cake or muffins from scratch. Any pre-made mix out of a box is not going to be healthy. Also, remember that when you're awarding yourself with a treat, it doesn't have to be a HUGE treat. Eat a piece of the cake, don't sit down and eat half of it in one sitting lol.

I also don't really feel like there is a "healthy" carrot cake. But at the same time I wouldn't worry about that. If you intend to enjoy the cake as a treat, what does it honestly matter it comes out of a box or if you make it with whole grain ingredients? Eat the cake you love!

I certainly think so. Especially if you make it from scratch and you cut out a lot of the sugar etc.

That's really good advice brightstar! Thank you so much for your tips. I agree that using a cake mix from a box isn't a good idea haha. Neither is being a pre-made cake.
