Yesterday we wrote about how strawberries can help brain and heart health. Eating strawberries daily is hardly a chore! A lovely bowl of fruit is a delicious way to end a meal.

This bread is perfect for breakfast, a snack or a dessert. It’s also wonderful for people who wouldn’t call themselves bakers. It only has six ingredients! You preheat the oven, mix everything in one bowl and bake. It couldn’t be easier! Keep an eye on it while it’s in the oven. The recipe says it takes 40 minutes to bake, but some reviewers have commented that it took longer, while others said it was done sooner. All ovens are different. A serving has 163 calories, four grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 15 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
Some many keto mousse recipes use heavy cream. That makes them decadent but also very high in fat. This one uses coconut cream. That keeps the creaminess, makes it airier, and significantly lowers the fat content. The recipe also uses gelatin, so it isn’t suitable for vegetarians. You could use ground chia in the place of gelatin to make it vegetarian. The gelatin adds stability as the recipe uses so much strawberry puree that the whipped coconut cream isn’t enough on its own to keep the mousse solid. A serving has 149 calories, 6.5 grams of carbs and 14 grams of fat. Get the recipe.
