My daughter and I compared the GF and Butter yellow cake mixes from Betty Crocker. Both her family and my guys at home prefer the GF stuff.
The GF has 10 fewer calories per 43 grams of mix, no fat vs. 1.5 in the regular, 2 g. more carbs but 2 g. less sugar. Also, the GF mix had no artificial coloring and many fewer ingredients.
So, though I don't bake them that often, I can say that people are more likely to eat one piece of cake rather than two, and be happy.
Also, I find brown rice noodles far superior to white flour noodles, and more so than white rice. I think one must read labels. The Kinnikinnick English muffins have 360 calories in one. But they are really thick, and I get four slices from one. They're great for open face sandwiches.
I use a lot of quinoa with stir fry meals, and it pares well with fish.
