I apologize in advance if you resent, dislike or even hate this post, due to the possible addictive properties of this recipe. As if the aroma of ginger and 'Christmas spices wasn't enough, your tastebuds will be screaming out for more than just one slice! But read on and you'll discover that this cake recipe is not all bad, and it also has many health benefits from the spices it contains, and can actually help with weight control, and a variety of digestive ailments. Using a probiotic yoghurt will also increase the benefits of a slice or two of Danish Spice Cake.....
Therapeutic Hunger: Necessary for good health
I want to coin this term “Therapeutic Hunger” (TH), to differentiate it from the hunger that is associated with problem issues like famine, poverty and eating disorders.
“Therapeutic Hunger” (TH) is residual hunger that is still left when we don’t eat stomach full. When we finish meals, and have eaten just the right quantity of food, that we don’t feel full. This sweet hunger is very therapeutic, as it helps optimise digestion, proper absorption of nutrients, and enough space for elimination of waste.
