This time of year is when everyone is on a healthy kick, my local whole foods is crowded with those looking to eat healthy.  My local gym is crowded with those looking to be physically fit.  With that in mind I’m sure a lot of people are avoiding cupcakes right now.  But what if you chose a “healthy cupcakes”?  I spotted these Beet & Kale Chocolate Cupcakes on The Realistic Nutritionist’s blog.

A little side note, I’m really excited to have found this blog, it means there are other nutritionists and dietitians who love cupcakes as much as I do.  Continuing with the cupcakes, the realistic nutritionist claims that these cupcakes are a dream come true because they have vegetables in them but do not taste like vegetables!  There are only 191 calories per serving and low in fat, so all of the resolutioners out there can enjoy a little “healthy” cupcake.

I’ve been using Wilton Color Mist spray on food coloring for a while now. They make decorating easy and everyone thinks I’m a magician. But now they have pearl Color Mist, and this one is hard to beat! It gives the frosting a shimmering look, just perfect for the princess parties in your future! And as a bonus, it made my hand look a little like the tin man.
