Feel free to tweak it to your liking’s. Check out my post Healthier Cake: A Birthday Fruit “Cake”, for a step by step tutorial on how I made this.

Here are some more innovative ways to add more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains to your day while watching your refined carbohydrates, sugar, and fat intake.
