Cake For Breakfast?

Not only can you eat cake for breakfast, doing so may actually help you keep weight off, a new study suggests. In the study, obese participants who ate a breakfast high in protein and carbohydrates that included a dessert were better able to stick to their diet and keep the pounds off longer than participants who ate a low-carb, low-calorie breakfast that did not include sweets. Carbs and protein eaten at breakfast may keep us full throughout the day, plus allowing ourselves some sweets helps to stem cravings for these foods, said study researcher Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, of Tel Aviv University in Israel.

Hats Off To The Graduate!

May is the month of numerous graduation ceremonies, a time when a graduate’s personal star shines more brightly in the sky as we mark the passage of time and progress in life. Most cultures consider graduation from high school a major milestone and one of the last remaining “rites of passage” in modern societies.

In today’s world, we have graduation ceremonies with a commencement address, where diplomas are awarded to each graduate with a handshake and are typically followed by parties where graduates receive gifts of money and the best wishes of invited guests.

But if we look below the surface we can see that graduation ceremonies are more than just a celebration of earning a diploma. If the ceremony was only about that achievement, then the rite itself would feel more joyful than it usually does. Smiles on graduation day are always blended with tears and a melancholy nostalgia. Graduation takes on special significance in our culture as the one transition where we honor the exciting, challenging, and painful process of “letting go” that begins before high school even starts. The teenager must let go of a childhood and the safety of dependence, and the parents must let go of the emotional anchor around which they oriented plenty of their lives.

It is vital that we honor more than just the student and more than just education at a graduation ceremony; we need to celebrate the special journey that each graduate is making of growing up.  A journey destined to each finding out who they are, what they are naturally good at doing, how they can go into the world and support themselves, and most of all, that they are lifelong learners born with a unique set of skills and gifts to share in this world and leave it a better place than when they arrived.

Hats off to the graduate! Whether you are celebrating a graduation from high school, college or receiving any type of diploma celebrate your journey with one of our very own graduation Cakes.

How Chocolate Affects The Brain

We love chocolate not just because of the way it tastes. We love it because of the way it makes us feel. It’s rare that something so downright delicious is also good for you, but chocolate is an exception to the rule.

Eating chocolate can make you happy

Dark chocolate boost’ the production of “feel-good” chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins bind with opiate receptors in the brain leading to feelings of euphoria, like the kind joggers get from “runner’s high.” They also reduce pain and diminish the negative effects of stress.

chocolate improves blood flow to the brain

Compounds in dark chocolate boost memory, attention span, reaction time, and problem-solving skills by increasing blood flow to the brain. The flavonoids in chocolate have been shown to improve blood flow to the brain in young and old alike.

 chocolate improves learning, memory, and focus

Cocoa’s flavonoids penetrate and accumulate in the brain regions involved in learning and memory, especially the hippocampus. Chocolate contains flavonoids which improve standardized cognitive test scores. Chocolate also contains some caffeine, a known brain booster that in low doses improves memory, mood, and concentration.

chocolate can help relieve stress

Magnesium is so good at helping you relax that it’s been dubbed the “original chill pill.” This essential mineral reduces stress by suppressing the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Magnesium is largely missing from our diets but chocolate contains a substantial amount of it.

 

Origin Of The Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is an anthropomorphic, egg-laying rabbit who sneaks into homes the night before Easter to deliver baskets full of colored eggs, toys and chocolate.

If you go way back, though, the Easter Bunny starts to make a little sense. Spring is the season of rebirth and renewal. Plants return to life after winter dormancy and many animals mate and procreate. Many cultures held spring festivals to celebrate this renewal of life and promote fertility. One of these festivals was in honor of Eostre or Eastre, the goddess of dawn, spring and fertility near and dear to the hearts of the pagans in Northern Europe. Eostre was closely linked to the hare and the egg, both symbols of fertility.

As knowledge spread, it was common for missionaries to practice some good salesmanship by placing these ideas and rituals within the context of the faith and turning festivals into custom holidays (e.g. Easter).

The people hung on to the rabbit and eventually, it became a part of a celebration. We don’t know exactly when, but it’s first mentioned in European writings from the 1600s. The Europeans converted the rabbit image into Oschter Haws, a rabbit that was believed to lay a nest of colored eggs as gifts for good children. (A poll of my Twitter followers reveals that 81% of the people who replied believe the Easter Bunny to be male, based mostly on depictions where it’s wearing a bowtie. The male pregnancy and egg-laying mammal aspects are either side effects of trying to lump the rabbit and egg symbols together, or rabbits were just more awesome back then.)

Oschter Haws came to America with Pennsylvania Dutch settlers in the 1700s, and evolved into the Easter Bunny as it became entrenched in American culture. Over time the bunny started bringing chocolate and toys in addition to eggs (the chocolate rabbit began with the Europeans, too, when they started making Oschter Haws pastries in the 1800s).
