Health Benefits for dessert…

So there are certainly going to be some pros and cons with this particular dessert,

Pros
  • Vitamin C (16 % of the daily recommended dose)
  • Vitamin A
  • Antioxidants
  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Protein
Cons
  • A typical piece of Cheese cake has 250 callories

  • Saturated fat can raise your cholesterol level which can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke

No one has ever said that comfort food is good for you. Everything in moderation, and seriously if you do it the way Ken’s family did, that was maybe three cheese cakes a year.
