Sweet and Simple Chocolate Mug Cake
Sometimes you want a little something sweet….but you don’t want to bake a whole cake or make a full batch of cookies. Enter, this sweet and simple mug cake! It’s just enough to satisfy the craving, not too much that you’ll feel ill after eating it (even when I want cake, I don’t want to eat a whole cake!!) and there won’t be half a cake leftover.
I am a firm believer in the principles of intuitive eating. Don’t know what that is? Ask Google….or check out a few of my fave intuitive eating pros on Instagram – Rachel Molenda and Lauren Cadillac RD, CPT and know as @feelgooddietitian
Basically Intuitive eating means listening to your body, honouring what it is you want to eat and allowing that to happen. No guilt. No shame. No beating yourself up about it. And I love cake. So when I want some cake, I will eat some cake. This recipe makes it easy to have just enough cake to satisfy the craving whenever I want it! The simple principle is that by honouring what your body wants rather than allowing the negative emotions about giving in to “bad” food, you are less likely to eat beyond your comfort or feel out of control around it because you haven’t cut out an entire food group!
No cheating. No need to punish yourself. No need to eat a whole cake because you “failed and might as well just give up now”. Just a delicious bit of cake when you feel like it! Bonus? This recipe is likely enough for 2, so you can share with someone you know who also loves cake! Or, eat it all and it’s still not the end of the world! Love. In Every Bite. I promise <3
