Benefits eating Strawberries, what are they?

Strawberries, Strawberries, who needs to be convinced of the benefits eating strawberries?  Fresh strawberries are a sweet favorite.  They smell great so the anticipation of eating them is the singular thought of oh yum Strawberries.   I like to think of them as miniature apples, not for any reason but that when I pick them up they are as beautiful as any apple, if not more.  But I like both.

 

Strawberries are delicious  in a particularly strawberry way.  They taste great mixed into yogurt or oatmeal.  You can also blend them into a smoothie.  They are also really great added into salads. I mix them into any type of salad, but they are most always found in spinach salads. But whatever salad you decide to drop them into will just be enhanced.

The benefits of eating strawberries starts with the fact that they are amazingly low in suger.  I eat them right out of the refrigerator.  I might grab one as I prepare  breakfast or just munch on one before dinner.

Make sure when you get them home, to rinse them in water with just a little vinegar to help make sure they are clean.  Washing them in this mix also helps to keep them fresh longer.  But do enjoy these sweet jewels anytime of the day as a great breakfast item, an afternoon snack or before dinner snack.  It’s one of the most beautiful packages of vitamin C,  I can think of.

Nutrition, benefits of eating strawberries

Strawberries are rich in these essential nutrients:

  • vitamin C,
  • potassium,

More nutritional benefits:

One cup of fresh strawberries contains 160 percent of the daily recommended quantity of vitamin C for only 50 calories.  Strawberries boosts immunity.  They promote eye health.  They also fight bad cholesterol and may help to reduce inflammation.  Strawberries regulate blood pressure because of their potassium content.

 

These sweet beautiful berries are just packed with nutrients and are so delicious.  They also aid in weight management, since they are naturally low in calories, fat-free and low in sodium.

  1. I, too, absolutely love strawberries. I’ve tried to grow my own, however, the wildlife that visit my garden love strawberries too and I often see bites taken out of them.
    I did not know about washing them in vinegar and will do this from now on.
    My favorite way of enjoying strawberries is when they’re dipped in dark chocolate. Try it.

    1. Karen, who doesn’t like strawberries?  I’ve seen the bites taken out of them I think squirrels must like them.  I also like to dip them in chocolate.  I’m glad you’ve tried growing your own maybe one day you can find a way to stop the wildlife from taking bites and keep growing them otherwise the grocer is there for convenience.  Have a good one.  Thanks for your comments.
