Sugar-Free Christmas Cake

This sugar-free Christmas cake is sa-weet!

If you have a sweet tooth like me and seeking alternative ways to satisfy it, you should try this cake. Fruit is the key!

Them: “But fruit is just as bad as sugar and makes you fat.”

Me: “NO, it does not!”

(we really need to stop repeating on autopilot what others say and start thinking more critically about what was said)

First of all, there is no one food that makes you fat. Eating more calories than you expend on a daily basis over a period of time is what can make you fat.

You can get fat from eating salad if you consume too much of it, although I don’t know this to have ever happened.

Therefore, fruit does not make you fat. Read more about the lies that are being told here.

And despite what many people think, sugar in itself is not bad for you either. Again, it is eating too much sugar that may eventually lead to weight gain (consuming too many calories) which may contribute to elevated health risks. You can also learn more about some of those lies here.

So back to this cake. Bottom line – it’s just a tasty, joyful option that will help you to balance out the sugar scales if you find yourself tipping them over the holidays.

That is all! I am done rambling. Now, let’s get to the Christmas baking.
