There’s not much you can say about most cupcakes that is good from a health standpoint. After all, almost every ingredient that goes into them is unhealthy – carbohydrate and lectin-rich grains, health-destroying sugars, and artery-clogging fats. Cupcakes are small and cute of course, qualities that naturally minimize the amount of unhealthy food involved. But these qualities also prove extra-stimulating to our brains and make cupcakes harder for us to resist. To make this familiar modern food healthy, we really need to throw out all the ingredients and start from scratch, but can keep their appealing form and even use this appeal to encourage healthier snacking.
This HumanaNatura variation on traditional cupcakes is a far healthier alternative, but keeps their appealing smallness and cuteness. Our “World’s Healthiest Cupcakes” begin with a base of chopped greens and then add an appetizing mix of natural foods and tastes, in this case parboiled broccoli bits, a small wedge of cucumber, a sliver or two of red onion, a few blueberries and pearl tomatoes, and a bit of chopped dates. The cupcakes are lightly dressed and finished with parsley, paprika, coriander, and black pepper. Have one anytime. Seconds or thirds? Sure, why not!
