Sometimes, only cake will do. Here I am, watching my calorie intake, keeping a watchful eye on my fats and carbs, cycling my macros and eating enough spinach to make Popeye blush… and it strikes me that it would be an amazing idea to make cake. And so, here we are. No excuses, no faffing about – just one badass rich, dark chocolate orange cake. Eat it and be glad: yeah, it’s got carbs. Yeah, it’s got fat. Yeah, this probably won’t fit in your Shakeology meal plan… but hey, at just 3g of natural sugars per slice… that’s pretty badass in itself, right?
