Print Friendly 

Description:
Here is a surprisingly light and delicious cake that is sugar free. It is gluten free as well. Make the Honey Meringue to top it off and you have a wonderful dessert to serve your guests.
The 3 key health benefits of honey are related to the fact that:
1. Honey is nature's energy booster
2. Honey is a great immunity system builder
3. Honey is a natural remedy for many ailments
The health benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar.

Add apples and nuts and stir to mix well. Pour batter into a well sprayed or parchment lined 9”x9” cake pan. Spread out batter keeping the sides higher than the center.

In a very small sauce pan simmer honey until it reaches soft-ball stage 245°.
Meanwhile beat the egg whites to soft peaks. While still beating, slowly add the hot honey. Continue beating until lukewarm and egg whites are firmer.
This frosting will not keep as it separates after sitting for a while. It is best used the first day. Great for those who cannot have dairy.

Wellness Tip
Adequate Water Intake
Adequate water intake prevents your body from overheating. It is also required for normal metabolism. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already have lost 2% or more of your body weight in fluid. At 4%, loss of both strength and endurance can occur. A recent Institute of Medicine report stated that women on average would need just over 11, eight ounce cups of water per day (from both liquids and watery foods), men just under 16 cups. If you are very active or live in a hot or dry climate, you likely need more.

Be sure that you have some raw food snacks available while grocery shopping. Also, carry snacks in your car, your gym bag, your office drawer and in handy packets in the fridge. Here is a great snack to try out...

Goji berries grow on an evergreen shrub found in temperate and subtropical regions in China, Mongolia and in the Himalayas in Tibet. They are in the nightshade (Solonaceae) family. Goji berries are usually found dried. They are shriveled red berries that look like red raisins.
