All the books are wrong when they attribute gazillions of calories to the harmless donut! There’s so much air in them …
It’s totally inconceivable and WRONG that something so delightful, so delectable and so delicious can also be bad for you.
Perhaps if I’d photographed a cross-section – you’d have seen the minute air particles in the dough. Fewer calories.
Note to readers: This scrumptiously wicked donut was NOT on my plate but on that of a skinny looking woman two seats along from me. I suffered from the most dreadful pangs of food envy as it was placed on the table – which were satisfied, in part, by devouring the donut with my lens instead.
Confession time: I had just eaten, with feelings of extreme guilt and retribution, a seriously good lemon coconut and cream-filled sponge cake. Lemons are good for you … especially with strips of peel adding necessary and highly recommended fibre.
Anyone who dares tells me differently is WRONG.
Following every indulgence is a commitment to do better … right.
