Let’s get ready to…BAKE!
Recently, I have partnered with my local church to prepare baked goods with a healthy twist for the food pantry. I figure here is the ideal place to begin my nutrition for life endeavors.
Many of those who come seeking assistance from the food pantry are in dire need of not only food, but good food and education. Here’s where I come in…
I’m going to be providing one – two baked goods per week with a healthier feel and also host a meeting or two on the benefits of living a healthy, positive lifestyle. Since many of these people are in dire straights, it’s necessary they rediscover the right path, “nature’s path” to set them back on track.
Goodness of My Heart will feature updates every week on progress at the food pantry and of course- the recipes and lots of food porn pictures!
So here we go…for this week, I told you all earlier in my #WIAW feature I baked strawberry chocolate chip cake tops, which were a bit healthier because I used only one egg instead of three and no oil. (applesauce instead) And the best part is…they taste even batter…(better) and don’t leave a greasy mess on your hands! I’ll find out the verdict next Tuesday on if people liked ’em!
My mother also leads a bible study on Thursday nights, so I cooked this up. (Definitely not “healthified” by any means, but it’s still a new recipe creation of mine!)

So there you have it…my #HighFiveFriday and project give back endeavor all rolled into one scrumptious cake! Can you believe it’s the 5th week already of Meg’s #HighFiveFridays? Head over to her blog and check out to see what her and everyone else are high five-ing about this week!
Do you “pay it forward?” How do you give back to society?
