There are many recipes for healthier donuts that substitute traditional ingredients like white flour, refined sugar, and oil/lard. Healthier alternatives include using whole wheat flour, maple syrup, and baking the donuts instead of frying them in oil. You can also make them according to your diet – they can be dairy free, gluten free, or even vegan.
There is room in a healthy lifestyle to enjoy traditional donuts as well! Here are some tips:
-Eat donuts as a dessert, not as a breakfast!
-Eat donuts after a healthy, filling meal. That way you can make sure to get proper nutrition and nutrients.
-If you are going to eat donuts, eat GOOD donuts (not just a half stale one from a convenience store!) When you eat an indulgence food, make sure it is of good quality so that you can truly enjoy it!
-When enjoying a delicious donut, it is be best to enjoy it with others. You can cut it up into pieces and share with friends. Sometimes that is the best – when you share a yummy dessert with friends, you enjoy the food AND the company.
