The Health Benefits of Cake

Yes, you read that right there are health benefits to cake. At least I think so. Here’s why…

Imagine for a moment that everything bad you’ve heard about cake is true. The refined sugar, the bleached flower and hydrogenated oil… bad for you.

But what about the positive chemicals your body releases when you experience the joy of cake? Not to mention the mental health benefits caused by the enjoyment of a tasty, fresh, heavily frosted piece of your favorite variety.

I think there’s a kernal of truth in my daddypothosis.

As I’ve admitted before, I’m not a scientist. And I’m OK with that. But I do know (first hand) that the daily grind, often devoid of joy, takes a major toll on us.

Study after study tells us what’s bad for us. Don’t eat refined foods, don’t breathe, don’t use plastic, don’t ingest one million gallons of anything not even water (there are prescription drugs in there you know).

But who has done a study on the BENEFITS of cake? Or the benefits of anything enjoyable for that matter.

The point is that joy has great power. What we believe has a direct effect on what becomes reality. 

I’d like to see a study of people who do everything as healthy as possible, with one slight catch. Take all the joy out of their lives. My guess is that the lack of joy will crush any benefits of organic anything.

So, go ahead, eat that piece of cake. Enjoy it. It just might save your life.

And remember, you are not alone…

  1. Mmmmmm…. cake… and ou know we can’t forget about such things as carrot cake…you know there are veggies in there as well! I do hear you though. If you listen to the news you would think that anything out there will kill you… probably even living in a completely sterile environment will kill you eventually… I mean what’s next? Working out will kill you… I mean geez….

  2. I whole-heartedly agree! Cake as well as some other sweets can be a tremendous boost to a person’s mood. Anytime that I’m need a jolt I find the nearest chocolate source.

  3. hey, having cake is not a bad thing at all.
    Just keep ur status in ur mind such as health issues!

  4. Eating cake would really make one feel happy for this would help release hormones for you to feel good and think positively. Aside from that, there are other bountiful health benefits when eating cake once in a while.
