This is ☝️ a dish we are currently testing: Mini Almond Bundt Cake with Caramelized Pineapple. Guys, really I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed cake more!
When you see this, what is your immediate thought? If you feel a pang if guilt or ambivalence thinking about feeding this to yourself or your child, guess what? You are just like the majority of Americans.
The French National Center For Scientific Research conducted a word associated study. When shown ‘chocolate cake’, Americans were most likely to respond with ‘guilt’. French people, however, were most likely to associate cake with ‘celebration’ or ‘birthdays’
Throughout a similar study from the University of Canterbury, the researchers found that those who associated cake with guilt were more likely to display out of control eating habits.
So if the guilt isn’t serving us, don’t you think it’s time to let it go?? And if you didn’t feel guilt to begin with, you just get to celebrate even more!
What is your favorite dessert?
