I have the best memories as a child running barefoot through my grandpa's garden, amongst many of his other fruits & veggies - strawberries were definitely a favourite!
These little berries are not only super tasty but have a lot of great health benefits as well:
- High in Vitamin C - which helps make collagen & maintain skin health
- Rich in Antioxidants - which help to fight off free radical damage which contributes to cell mutation (cancer, etc)
- Anti inflammatory - helps to lower your body's inflammatory response, linked to blood pressure & cholesterol.
- Fibre in strawberries supports the growth of healthy gut bacteria which boosts immunity & mood!!
So many options with these beautiful berries but recently we made Strawberry "milk"shakes for Saturday movie night & they were a hit!
