Today is National Cake Day!
At Private Home Care, we want you to know that you can have your cake and eat it too!
Eating healthy does not mean you have to throw away your favorite family recipes! You can substitute ingredients to make healthier dishes that still taste spot-on! Small adjustments in recipes can make a big difference. Remember, proper nutrition is crucial for living a long, healthy life, and helps reduce the chance of conditions like Alzheimer’s. When consumed in moderation, healthier baked goods can be a great once-in-a-while treat.
