This cupcake was as scrumptious as it looks, wrapped in a petite paper-twine cup and baked ’till golden. The first bite was heaven, and the second was a jump from cloud nine to ten. The best part is its flour-alternative Kamut base which is full of healthy grains. Definitely going to bake these once I’m back home in LA!

As you guys may or may not know, Whole Foods is my holy place, I used to be a Vegan, and I’m always reading labels. But it wasn’t always this way. Here’s my backstory:
I grew up living within the dietary lifestyle of a chiropractor as a dad and Persian health nut for a mom, who’s saying never failed to remind us that “back at home in Iran, the fruits were our candy and the nuts our junk food.” She has now gone gluten-free, become a passionate advocate for water health across the globe, and my dad a nature enthusiast since forever, backpacking, camping, climbing, and biking always a checkmark on the agenda. But I was the average teen with tastebuds for sweets and creams, buying cookies from school and potato chips from the vending machines. Even worse, I was an addict of soda. I knew somewhere in my subconscious that they were all bad things but I never understood why. It was only until I grasped the reasons against my actions that I finally brought them to a stop.
