Why would I choose a protein dessert??
Maybe the answer to this question is a no brainer for some of you, but there was a time when I can remember wondering, “if I’m already choosing to eat dessert, why eat something that isn’t the real thing? Why would muscle down some dry, hardly-edible piece of cake when I could put those calories towards something truly satisfying?” What’s more, some argue that if you trick yourself into eating a low calorie dessert, your mind will justify you eating more of it which then leads you to issues with over-eating.
Well, with Core Cakes, this isn’t a problem.
Why? Because Core Cakes are MORE than a low calorie dessert for two reasons.
Reason number one: Our added protein helps you feel full quicker and longer.
A research team from Purdue University analyzed multiple studies on protein rich diets. They published their findings in 2016 in The Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics concluding that eating more protein did in fact leave people feeling more statiated.
Our team can confirm this is absolutely true. While we were researching and perfecting the Core Cakes recipe, we tested countless mug cakes! We ate no more than 1-2 bites of each cake, but it wasn’t long before we had to turn away anymore samples, afraid that our bellies might burst. Because we’ve included so much protein in our cakes (as in, it’s the first ingredient listed on our list) and created an easy serving size of 170 calories or less in each pouch, you can feel totally satisfied in your choice of dessert without the fear of “over-doing it”.
Reason number two: Our cakes are a REAL dessert
So we’ve told you just how filling our protein mug cakes can be. But don’t let this trick you into thinking Core Cakes are some kind of imitation of cake that sticks in your throat while you try and force it down. What I’m trying to say is, it’s HARD to walk away from you Core Cake unfinished.
How can we say that our cakes are “the real deal” with such confidence? Because we’ve tested them on the most brutally honest focus group on the market - kids.
Kids won’t lie and make you feel better about your crappy product. They won’t pretend to swallow your food and force a smile and tell you it was good -- especially when it comes to treats. There are plenty of protein bars, muffins, cookies etc that our kids will take a nibble of and flat out refuse to eat any more….but not with Core Cakes. Whenever we pull out a fresh cake from the microwave, we have to hurry and hide it from our kids so they won’t swarm and take over our hard earned dessert! So yes, Core Cakes IS a dessert -- a protein packed, moist, mouth-watering, spongey, cakey, dessert that will do so much more for your body than the sugar-overload alternative.
