Thanks to Jan, I, too, am adopting the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle.
I'll admit that it takes some getting used to, and there is still much I have to learn.
But it is working. Aside from losing weight, I'm sleeping better and I don't feel bloated anymore.
That said, there are two things I cannot go without--chocolate and sweets.
Okay, in most cases, chocolate is a sweet. So shoot me.
On most diets (I hate using that word), those two things would mean sabotage.
But whether you're gluten-free, low-carb or just cutting out the sugar, this is something you CAN have.
AND, it's actually good!
So here's what you need:
- 1 egg
- 2 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 3-4 teaspoons Truvia
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- A dash of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 level tablespoon coconut oil
And, of course, you need a mug. :)
Crack the egg into the mug and whisk well with fork. Add remaining ingredients.
Doesn't look like much, but just wait.
Stir vigorously until combined.
Microwave for one minute. Yep, that's it.
Turn out onto plate.
This is really a good-sized portion for one person.
I like to slice mine in half and add a couple squirts of whipping cream for a little extra sweetness.
Unlike the Cake in a Mug recipe I shared last month, the one with the funky texture,
this is very moist, soft and very cake-like. With virtually no carbs!
Whoo-hoo! I can have my cake and eat it too!
So what's everybody been up to?
I feel like I've been treading water since Christmas. So much to do, yet not accomplishing any of it.
Something that has GOT to change. And soon.
So if someone could push the pause button on this thing called life, I would be most appreciative. ;-)
