Keto Chocolate Cake Recipe

Is it possible to leave a world behind and still find pleasure with healthiness? Try this keto chocolate cake recipe and enjoy a healthy life!

Who would have thought that there were times when chocolate cakes didn’t exist? It’s like asking any 10 years old what was life before the Internet. We can imagine that there were times when there was not TV, Internet or microwave oven but life without the Internet is unimaginable now.

Is this a brave new world?

Soon life without Social Media will make that list too, making the Internet as essential and overlooked tool as electricity when delivering news through the TV.

Although Social Media has made profound changes to people’s life, much like electricity or water did, we can’t be sure that all is for the better. Suddenly, first in the history of mankind, people from all sorts of background have the ability to speak to each other without the restrictions of social barriers.

Anyone with a Twitter account can directly speak to the president of a country, billionaires or to celebtrities. We can share our opinion, ideas or affection anytime with people who were previously been protected by ministers, expensive golf club memberships or bodyguards.

Ideas can spread without filters and make a change in the real world without control of any sort. The tastiest chocolate cake recipe can travel instantly from one side of the Globe to the other, bringing joy and harmony across the way.

What about bad cake recipes?

But only if the recipe is really about the tastiest chocolate cake. With great power comes great responsibility and not everybody has been using this power to advance mankind to achieve higher goals but to exploit its weaknesses to advance their own agenda.

Even those, who are well versed in the world of media and human behavior, connected to it, are subject to the built-in biases and prejudices we all come equipped with. The selection of words, colors and body language of the speaker all affects our opinion on any subject subconsciously.

Most of our decisions are based on what feels right or wrong with the voice of reasoning looked over, like a chatter of a 7 years old. Unfortunately though, our gut feelings are the easiest to manipulate for those who has the knowledge.

Can we choose our cakes?

Consumer businesses, marketing companies and gambling have long been studying human behavior and using various strategies to exploit our behavior to make us happier customers and along the way obviously, increase their profit.

Those who aren’t aware of their own flaws can easily fall for the enticing deals, possibilities and hopes that are all packaged to convince our guts, to feel right about our decisions to buy into them.

As much as seeing that tasty, delicious food is actually bad for us on the long-term, many times we struggle to see the long-term consequences of our present actions.

Can we get rid of unhealthy recipes?

It doesn’t help much that those who make us fat, will try to amend things by running body positive campaigns, trying to convince us that being fat is ok.

Well, they don’t really have to try, as once we make up our mind in choosing something we like to stick to, even if we see evidence for the opposite. We use information that aligns with our beliefs to support our actions and easily dismiss any information that discredits our theories. Interestingly, we are able to do this within the same paragraph of text from one sentence to the other.

Although, a little while ago we only had to cope with horoscopes at the back of some magazines that were filled with such stories, now we have to scroll through our life like that, trying to make sense of the feed of events that surrounds us.

Is living in a cake shop worth it?

How could we make sense of things when whatever we see is not even the real world around us anymore. Social media companies curate content for us to see only what we want to see without any reference point to the opposite.

It’s like throwing us into a cake shop and saying that this is life. No wonder that even peeping out of that bubble gives us the heeby jeeby, let alone allowing anyone to talk us out of there.

In reality though, there are options to eat the cake and stay healthy too. If someone is willing to open the door and let things enter into their bubble, miraculous things can happen. As it is with every change, there are things that will be different but as much we grow to love our cars over our horses, we will find our favorites in a world that is not just looks good but feels good too.
