Fall and winter are the official season of apple cider donuts! Not that you can’t have them all year round, but they are more easily found in grocery stores this time or year 😉 I figured we could practice adding to this delish pastry together as a form of celebration. That way, we can incorporate some gentle nutrition skills and eat some yummy donuts! Let’s work through this add-in method together.
Donuts, and really any pastry, bring a carb to the table. Yes, it has a bit of protein from the eggs in the batter, maybe some butter brings us fat, but predominantly, we can consider a donut a source of carbs. To practice adding in, we are going to serve this with a protein and fat to increase the staying power and filling factor! Keep scrolling for the step-by-step on how to do so easily!
This is not to say you cannot or should not eat a donut by itself. You absolutely are allowed to do that! Further, you are allowed to do so guilt-free, judgment-free, and enjoy the heck out of it. This, like so many of our skills, is a tool to use when you want to incorporate more macros and food groups into your meal or snack. Using this skill is a great way to balance your blood sugar, and increase the snack’s staying power! Sometimes you want or need something with a little more to it, and other times you just want a freakin’ donut as is… nothing wrong with that. I strongly encourage you to honor your cravings, while also being aware of your individual needs in a given situation.
Okay, let’s get into the donuts!
