Strawberries

Springtime means fresh strawberries around TABLE and there’s nothing sweeter.

Strawberries are low in calories, delicious, and healthy. They are a good source of many vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds — some of which have powerful health benefits such as reduced cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation, and oxidative stress. Berries are are a great fruit choice because the can help prevent big spikes in both blood sugar and insulin levels. You can even eat the green tops! If you have an excess of berries, wash and freeze them for use in smoothies. Or add them to your favorite spring salad like this one!
