ENJOY HEALTHY STRAWBERRIES THIS SPRING

According to nutritionist Joy Bauer, strawberries are one of Spring's healthiest bounty.  She states that these tasty berries are one of nature's most potent sources of vitamin-C.  One of the benefits of vitamin-C is that it helps the body produce collagen which is a structural protein that helps keep skin youthful, firm, and radiant. For those watching their weight or for diabetics who have to be careful of the natural sugar content in fruits, strawberries are some of the lowest calorie and lowest sugar fruit options.  Slice some of these healthy berries onto your oatmeal or cold cereal, enjoy them in a lettuce salad, slice them over angel food or pound cake, etc.  They also make a great addition to fruit trays and platters.  As the bounty of strawberries hit your grocers shelves, farmers markets, etc., take advantage of these fresh berries for a tasty, healthy treat.
