Healthy, Easy Angel Food Cake Recipe

When you start a diet, you usually face food restrictions that change the way you would normally eat. Snack foods, for instance, are largely out for many diet plans. Desserts are highly caloric because they’re so high in sugar and fat and, unfortunately, they can have a greater impact than other foods because you often eat them later in the day, especially dinner.
