Who Wants to Eat a Healthy Doughnut? Not I!
Healthy Doughnut? No. This is an oxymoron. Healthy and doughnut stand as polar opposites. Not only do they not suit one another, but I don't want to ever hear the statement, healthy doughnut.
I am just as much of a healthy eating advocate as the next person, but the thought of a healthy doughnut doesn't sit well with me. Recently, I read an article called "Healthy Donut Muffin Recipe" on The Huffington Post that details a tasty recipe for these "treats." The author, Kristine Fretwell, begins the article by saying, "Doughnut...healthy. Did you ever think you'd see that in the same sentence? Probably not!" Kristine I agree with you on that part. But as tasty as your healthy doughnut muffins may be, it will not work for me.
I will not eat a healthy doughnut just like I believe a plain doughnut is no doughnut at all. I agree with this 12 year old girl's essay on "The Fake Doughnut." Read below.
Doughnuts are meant to be breakfast desserts and extravagant treats. Occasionally, dessert for breakfast is wonderfully satisfying and doughnuts give you the opportunity to step outside breakfast normalcy.
Doughnuts are meant to be unhealthy, sugary, and when you eat one or many you're supposed to be bordering a sugar induced coma. Afterwards, you indulge in exercise and healthy eating to make up for your doughnut splurging. It's the natural circle of life.
Do you want to eat a healthy or plain doughnut?
