My Views on Baking & Baked Goods
There are some things you should know… this being a nutrition blog and all! I don’t really believe in low-fat or fat-free baking. If I’m going to eat or bake, it’s got to be the real deal! I did go through phases where I would try to cut out the fat from recipes. After many attempts, I quickly learned that I did not like the taste of low-fat or fat-free baked goods.
Baking is one of my favorite things to do. If I could do it all day I would! On this blog you will see me debut many different recipes, a lot of them will be of baked sweets. While I don’t believe in cutting out ingredients, you will often see me substitute ingredients. For example, I always bake with whole wheat pastry flour. For me, it produces the same results as all purpose flour. You may see me use regular flour in items such as pie crust… but that’s it. Another thing you will see me do is “Veganize” a recipe. In my experience, I have often found that a veganized baked good tastes even better than the regular version… especially in cakes and muffins. I don’t worry about cutting out the fat or sugar, but I will try to use natural ingredients as often as I can (depending on my budget).
You may be wondering if I’m vegetarian or vegan… the answer is no, I’m not a vegan, and this website is not about vegan food, but I am completely open to experiencing all types of food. 85% of my diet is vegetarian… it’s just the way my body naturally eats. So, that being said… stay tuned for my debut recipe creation coming soon!!
