Featured Recipe: Strawberry Banana Sandwiches
Strawberries are one fruit which will always give you a taste of the field – every single berry is picked, sorted and packed by hand in the fields they are grown in. Trays of strawberries are then rushed to shipping facilities where they are cooled-down, loaded into refrigerator trucks and delivered to super markets around the country, all in the matter of about 24 hours. It’s a good thing they are grown and delivered so quickly, too, because you can’t get enough of this colorful super food. Each berry contains a surprising amount of nutrients that provide incredible health benefits. They are also incredibly delicious!
Strawberries are low in sugar (only 7 grams per serving), making them a naturally sweet indulgence for today’s dieters. Whether they are fresh, frozen or dried, simply eaten on their own, blended in a smoothie, tossed in a salad or used to top your favorite dessert, strawberries are most definitely one of the best fruits for you.
