Spotlight on Strawberries
Strawberries are in season and they are one of my favorite summer treats! Packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, they help prevent wrinkles and keep your skin supple by pumping up collagen production and defending against wrinkle producing free radicals. These juicy red berries also contain the fiber pectin, which helps eliminate bad cholesterol and guards against heart disease. Oh, and they help prevent cancer, too!!
Some of my favorite ways to eat fresh strawberries are:
*Sprinkled on top of granola with bananas
*Added to smoothies or yogurt
*Tossed on a salad of fresh greens with pecans or walnuts
*Dipped in chocolate for a decadent dessert
Or plop them in my mouth just plain!
