The Easiest Keto Dessert Ever

When I'm deep into keto, I don't really have many sugar cravings, but there are times when I do still want a taste of something sweet-ish. When I crave chocolate, I'll usually buy a chocolate bar that's mostly cacao, which does the job. If I don't have access to a store, I'll whip this mousse up. My version is a little easier, but the recipe here's still easy if you want cinnamon!

Do you have any little hands growing flowers and plants this year? Whether they are your children, students, family or neighbors, growing a garden with young people is always a good idea!

Between bullfrog introduction, fungal threats and other causes, the red-legged frog was killed off in Yosemite years ago. Experts say it was preventable, but there is some great news: the species has been reintroduced back into the park through a collaborative effort from the San Francisco Zoo, the National Park Service, Yosemite Conservancy, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Discuss Your Way Of Eating

When people get irritated about, or ridicule other people's ways of eating, I can't help but shake my head. We might all be mammals, but we've evolved to a point where we all have different dietary needs. Some people have deathly allergies or sensitivities that can deeply affect their health. In fact, I think more people have sensitivities than not and just don't know it, and if more of us were willing to try modifications we could probably be a lot healthier, even happier, as a result.
