I NEVER used Stevia in mine. I always used about 1-2 teaspoons of honey instead.

And here's a chocolate one:
http://humblefoodie.com/2012/03/07/paleo-mug-cakes/


Based off these two recipes this is where I've landed as my standard:
1 extra large egg
1 banana (I like the super brown ones)
1 tbsp nut butter (or sunflower butter if you've got a nut allergy)
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract (check your labels... you'd be surprised how many vanilla extracts have other junk in them like corn syrup)
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp walnuts, chopped


You can add protein powder if you like, I have both vanilla and chocolate I've used in the past, or for the chocolate recipe you just use plain cocoa powder. I also vary between days that I decide to use Pumpkin Pie Spice, Apple Pie Spice, or sometimes I start grabbing nutmeg, ginger, cloves, et cetera, and add whatever/however much I want. You can use honey or maple syrup but I rarely do anymore. Swap out the walnuts for different nuts (like pecans!) Sometimes I use butter instead of coconut oil. I usually don't add chocolate chips unless it's Friday and I've decided I want some, haha. Then I usually chuck a small handful (like maybe six??) on top when it comes out of the microwave and let them melt on top.

I've noticed baking works best with "simple" cakes - if you know what I mean? The cake may just not be as sweet - but that's not negative IMO
Just don't use the same amount of cups honey as you would sugar. Depending on the cake I've notice 3-5 TS is enough.

Day 3, and I had AWFUL stomach pain today midmorning. It was so bad I thought I was going to vomit, was sweating, and could barely finish the project I was working on before I left sick. I did some searching online, and it seems that nausea is a symptom of sugar withdrawal.

I'm feeling a bit better now, but I nearly fell asleep driving home and have been sleeping all afternoon.

I'm going to get some ginger caplets and see if that helps.

The nausea and feeling sleepy are both definitely withdrawal symptoms. =< Stick with it and you WILL feel better soon!! Spearmint is my go-to for stomach pains - I know places like Wal-Mart have spearmint teas you might want to get ahold of and drink.

I cut out cokes a couple weeks ago. I did have one last weds because someone bought It for me at a concert not realizing I'd quit. I felt obligated.

I am cutting out all bread and such because I have so much family with gluten intolerance and wheat allergies. I figure I should Try and see if that helps my stomach issues.

Long story short- I feel very headachey and bloated? I'm two days in on his no bread thing.

this is normal. For most people I know that have done it, days 3-4 were the worst. Eat an avocado

but after that it gets better and those feelings do go away. I don't miss those mid morning times when I feel like i'm going to pass out if i don't get some grain/sugar.

Well, after a rough night last night and an iffy morning, I'm feeling better. Actually, I ended up caffeine free today as well because the thought of drinking anything other than diet ginger ale and water made my stomach to flip flops.

Well I weighed myself today. I've lost like 7 or 8 pounds this week!
