Gooey Chocolate Lava Cake in a Mug THM-S

Is it cake? Is it pudding? Gooey Chocolate Lava Cake in a mug is the most decadent choclatey dessert anybody ever ate and still lost weight - yes, it is low-carb!

Low carb eating agrees with me. I love the food. I always feel better. When I follow a low-carb regimen I have more energy and lose weight, too. So why has it been such a struggle to stick with? Well, frankly, I missed carbs. And I especially missed yummy desserts! 

Now that I have discovered Trim Healthy Mama, problem solved! The plan allows me to include healthy carbs while following a significantly low-carb strategy. Best part?  I get to have awesome desserts, too. 

As a rank beginner, I first came up with my Dreamy Creamy Cheesecake You Will Love... in a Mug. What a great dessert! It truly is a low-carb dream come true. I continue to enjoy it over and over again. 

My most recent obsession is a chocolate lover's dream ⇒ Gooey Chocolate Lava Cake in a Mug! And, I am losing weight. 8.5 pounds in 4 months. Oh, others have lost faster but my goal is to get to the finish line and stay there - not necessarily set a record for speed! 

This chocolate mug cake recipe can be enjoyed on pretty much any low-carb plan. Read the labels on the ingredients and you will see that it is true. The THM philosophy is desserts don't have to be tacked onto the end of a meal. Instead, have it as a meal! Cake for breakfast? Sure! No wonder I love THM! 

I came up with the recipe from their Volcano Lava Mudslide Muffin. I didn't have all the ingredients in the house - and I was desperate for chocolate! So, I used what I had and "Voila" - my lava cake in a mug was born.
