Strawberry season, also known as “the most wonderful time of the year” in
my house is right around the corner (mid-May). These beautiful red fruits
are not only sweet, juicy, and versatile, they are also packed full of
vitamins and minerals and are a good source of fiber.
Did you know that only eight berries provides100 percent of your daily recommended amount of vitamin C? Vitamin C is great because it helps promote iron absorption. Strawberries are also rich in potassium, which helps with blood pressure control. Strawberry's flavanoids and antioxidants are also beneficial for heart health!
This fruit is perfect for snacking and I LOVE strawberries for dessert, but these juicy, red stars are so versatile you can easily add them to a more savory meal.
perfect for your Cinco de Mayo.
