It’s strawberry time!

A great way to help the environment, the local communities, local businesses and farmers and stay in great health is to eat just what is in season.

Guess what’s in season now? Strawberries!

If you live in an area that is rich in strawberries now is the time to enjoy some. If you live in UK, Scottish strawberries are quite tasty and if you live in the USA, Florida and California strawberries seem to be the best. If you live in any other area if you go to the supermarket or the market now it’s the time to pick some of these delicious fruits!

The strawberries are rich in

  • Vitamin C
  • Potassium
  • Fiber
  • Antioxidants

You can eat them plain, on top of a cheese cake, made into a syrup, jam, banana and strawberry shake or smoothie, on top of your cereal and milk or in a fruit salad.

    There’s a farm right down the road from me that has THE BEST strawberries EVER. They’re like gems from heaven. My only complaint is that strawberry season is so short here! For us, it’s mostly already over. 😦 But we bought a ton and stored some in the freezer.

    Wow! you are lucky. I can only find them in the supermarket but maybe next year I’ll try to grow some in pots. My grandma used to store them by making jam, lots of it. So we ate strawberry jam all the time. Tastier than the supermarket ones.
