Why I Will Not Feel Bad About Feeding People Whole-Wheat Chocolate Cupcakes

Using data from the Women’s Health Study, researchers found that women who consumed diets rich in whole grains had a reduced risk of developing high blood pressure, with the protective effect holding even with other factors like weight, smoking and exercise habits in play.

This is interesting because whole grains’ benefits have been demonstrated in preventing heart disease and stroke, but this is new research on blood pressure.

(And I also don’t feel bad because the cupcakes are tasty, too.  If you want to make them, my whole-wheat chocolate cake recipe is here and my vegan chocolate frosting recipe is here.  Bake the cupcakes at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes.)
