I love strawberries! As a kid, I remember my grandmothers sprinkling sugar on top before serving them. That’s crazy! They’re already sweet enough!
This juicy (they’re 91% water) fruit is a good source of vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9) and potassium. Strawberries are rich in antioxidants and plant compounds that may benefit heart health and blood sugar control while providing protection from cancer by fighting inflammation.
I put them in my daily smoothie and add strawberries whenever I have a bowl of oatmeal. Even my pre-skate PB&J is made with strawberry jam. Always choose organic when it comes to strawberries. They top the list of produce with pesticide residue thus organic minimizes the exposure.
