This is not an especially practical recipe. Not only does it contain little to no nutritional value, it takes a large amount of time to prepare. The recipe does have the advantage of being pretty cheap to prepare and quite filling. This meal mostly contains processed foods which are not recommended for nutritious eating. The only non-processed ingredient that is included in this recipe is nutmeg, and I would not call nutmeg a beacon of health and vitamins. Certainly a teaspoon of anything is not enough to make a literal donut into a health food. In addition to that, the dough ends up being fried, adding copious amounts of delicious and artery-clogging grease to the meal.
