4 main ingredients of Chocolate Truffle Cake which are issues

This choclate trufle cake is made from a base of eggless chcolcate sponge cake which we have explained the issues below. 

1. Plain flour or maida which is a refined ingredient and not good for health. Healthy eating should aim at avoiding these ingredients completely from your diet and sadly cake uses a lot of it. 

2. Sugar : Sugar used in the recipe is also called white poison. It is a simple carbohydrate with zero nutritional value. On intake, sugar will cause inflammation of the body which will last for many hours. It will spike your blood sugar level and shut down the fat burning process. This also causes high blood sugar levels in your body. The development of prediabetes comes from uncontrolled eating sugar and refined food products for many years and the classic symptom is if you have excess belly fat. This leads to diabetes and further onwards to heart attack, high blood pressure, strokes, impotence and kidney damage. 

How to quit sugar in your Indian meals.

To live a healthy life, try and cut sugar which from your diet. It requires a slow and deliberate attempt to do it. Find hidden sugar in packaged foods and drinks and stop having those products. Did you know that a can of your favourite soft drink is estimated to have 1/2 cup of sugar. Refinded carbohydrates like maida, sugar, bread, pasta, noodles and sugar on consumption get stored as unhealthy fat in the body. Sugar based foods make you feel lazy, tired and moody.

As you consume less sugar, your body will crave for it less. Instead of masala chai you can have ginger tea or fresh mint and lemon tea in the morning or just plain black coffee. When craving for sugar, turn to sweet fruits like bananas, pineapple, berries, strawberries etc. Use dates as a sweetener for your dessert like eggless date and almond cake. Avoid having too salty Indian foods like achar, papad, bread as you will later crave the opposite of sweet foods like peda, ladoo, chocolates, cola drinks etc which have loads of sugar.

3. Condensed Milk : This is sweetened full fat milk which is thickend and devoid of fibre which slows down the fat buring process. 

4. Dark Chocolate : Buy  85% dark chocolate which will have a nice bitter taste and this is healthy and expensive. Most cake users use a cheaper dark chocolate which is not that healthy. That is the main issue. 

Cocoa Power : Extermely healthy to have. 

Can i eat Chocolate Truffle Cake occasionally ?

The fact is that this cake is unhealthy as its made of refined ingredients and not suitable for daibetics and healthy life style. You can eat one slice of cake as a cheat meal. thats it. 

What is a healthier Cake option or dessert option?
