Using Edible Flowers 
in your party desserts, drinks, salads and even main dishes adds a unique element to your celebration. They add color, elegance, a bit of whimsy, and also have an interesting range of tastes.

Search for what is in season in your area – your local farmers’ market is a great source for finding out what is available and they’ll often have much more variety than the grocery store. Always ask vendors how their flowers are grown (you don’t want to eat flowers that have been sprayed with pesticides!). You can also order edible flowers (fresh or crystallized, which are great for using atop desserts) from several sites online (Gourmet Sweet Botanicals, Marx Foods, Food Innovations).

An Attitude of Gratitude


Gratitude

Gratitude is good for your mental health. 

Gratitude is a thankful appreciation for what a person receives, whether tangible or intangible. With gratitude or thankfulness, people acknowledge the goodness in their lives. In the process, they usually recognize that the source of that goodness lies at least partially outside themselves. As a result, being thankful also helps people connect to something larger than themselves— whether to other people, nature or a higher power.

PeachAlmondShortcake_RealYummies

Starting off the week with shortcake . . .

is always a good idea. Especially if they’re amazingly satisfying and healthy.

What’s not to love about this light summer dessert? It is a favorite of mine. I believe it was this seasonal dessert that got me liking peaches when I was a kid.

These flavorful shortcakes are SO simple, grain and gluten free, and taste even better than the shortcake I grew up with. They are moist and have the slightest sweetness to them…perfect for the dessert-ifying. Here, with the addition of sweetened peaches and coconut whipped cream, they are worthy of my top 2 desert spot!

Ingredients


Servings:

Instructions
  1. Mix the eggs, coconut flour, coconut milk, vanilla, baking soda, and monk fruit sweetener. Mix well.

  2. To cook these pancakes, you can use a griddle or a frying pan. Put the coconut oil into the pan to grease it and put the pan on low heat.

  3. Ladle some of the batter into the pan (to form a 3-inch diameter circle). The pancake should be thick so don’t try to make the batter spread out. If you’re using a large enough frying pan, you can cook 3 or 4 pancakes at the same time.

  4. Cook for 2 minutes and then flip. Continue cooking and flipping until both sides are brown.

  5. Microwave the berries for 1 minute. The juices will release and you will have a Keto berry syrup. Pour over pancakes and enjoy!
