My New Year's resolution this year is to eat healthier. Like making spinach smoothies or whatever it is all the kids are doing these days. More veggies. Definitely more fruit.
Do you think this would count?

Why it's dripping with healthiness!
Ok, fine, so maybe the apples are technically made from fondant, but baby steps, people.
How about this?
I think these are actually real grapes. I can't tell under that sparkly glaze of sugar, but I'm pretty sure. A slice or two of this for my mid-morning snack, and I'll be in marathon shape in no time!
I'm talking about a TV marathon, of course. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, anyone?
And here comes my face into this cake, because it looks irresistible. Don't worry though, it's totally healthy. It's probably peach flavored, so that evens everything out.
I've also heard that adding lemon slices to your water has some health benefits.

So, the same obviously goes for adding cute fondant lemons to anything. Let's not overlook the tastebud benefits and decorative benefits either.
Anyway, I think we all know that the secret is MODERATION. It just takes a little math.

One bowl of cherries is less than or equal to three tiers of delicious cake. See? It's not that hard.
And I'd call this a "well balanced" meal.

Now, it wouldn't be too hard to convince me to eat fresh strawberries right off the vine.
What's that you say? These are fondant too? Impossible! Too incredibly life-like. I will eat them all just to prove you wrong!
OK, you were right.
But THESE berries are totally the real deal.
In fact, I love a decadent heap of raspberries on my morning bowl of oatmeal and flaxseed. Minus the oatmeal. And flaxseed. Plus the cake.
But look, you can't tell me that there's not some nutritional value here. I see plenty of greenery.
Not only that, but fondant is made from two simple ingredients, sugar and corn syrup. CORN syrup? Sounds healthy enough to me. (Is it just me, or does it look like those are his-and-hers pears up there? Oh, wait. Pair of pears. I just got it. Nevermind.)
Whew, with all this eating right, I think it's time to reward myself.
Five layers of pineappley perfection. That should do it.
Yep, I'm feeling really good about this year!
