Meghan Markle’s love affair with the Megaformer and mindfulness predates her romance with Prince Harry, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that she’s incorporating healthy habits right into her wedding day. While she isn’t exactly requesting a bridal party smoothie bar or an on-site meditation booth to qualm pre-wedding jitters (hey, she’s becoming a royal, not a diva), she is putting a healthy-ish spin on the almighty wedding cake.

While The Telegraph previously predicted that the royal couple would go with a banana cakeKensington Palace announced on its official Twitter page that the couple’s cake will be a “lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright [flavors] of spring. It will be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.”

Okay, so the buttercream doesn’t exactly scream “good for you,” but the lemon and elderflower do serve up some benefits. (Elderflower is sometimes used to boost immunity, and both ingredients can benefit digestion, which is exactly what you need at a food- and booze-heavy wedding, right?)

And just in case if you’re wondering if the starring ingredients will be the real thing or just flavorings, Violet Bakery—the lucky London locale making the royal dessert—reportedly only uses organic, seasonal ingredients. So you can count on it being made with real lemon and elderflower, and topped with real, gorgeous flowers.

Countdown for the wedding is ON.

Speaking of royals, did you know Kate Middleton is into photography and henna?
