Strawberry Goodness

Who doesn’t LOVE strawberries? California Strawberries are one of my favourite snacks and berries of choice – all year ‘round!

Did You Know? A serving of California strawberries (i.e. 8 strawberries at one time) contains more Vitamin C than an orange. Not only are strawberries a great source of Vitamin C but a serving of strawberries can also be a great source of lycopene.

A serving of strawberries not only have more Vitamin C than an orange, but they’re also a source of fibre and are only 50 calories.

Strawberries are truly a perfect delicious, tasty and nutritious snack option for anywhere and anytime. Ask yourself the following questions. Do any of these scenarios resonate with you?

Do you often have a craving for sweets at 2-3 PM every day? A serving of California strawberries should be able to satisfy your sweet craving in the afternoon.

Are you often stuck in traffic often and need something to tie you over before your next meal? Pre-pack 8 California strawberries ahead of time so that you won’t fall victim to mindless eating.

Tired of eating a banana after a workout? Strawberries are also a great source of potassium so bananas are not your only after workout snack option. 😉 Remember it only takes 8 strawberries to make up a serving.

Tired of your usual peanut butter toast at breakfast? Jazz up your toast with some California strawberries. 🙂 In addition to the strawberries, add some goat cheese, edamame and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
