Friday Food: Strawberry Picking

Image placeholder title

Last weekend we went strawberry picking with the girls. In addition to being a great nature lesson about the source of our food, it inspired me to look up fresh summer recipes utilizing this in-season delicacy.

We love serving strawberries to our girls. This fruit provides guilt-free goodness. Strawberries are packed with vitamin C and are also high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants. Unadorned, these berries have only 55 calories per one cup serving.

If you can't pick them fresh, try to source them locally. The flavor will be zippier and it's better for your local economy and the environment. Here's an easy way to enjoy fresh berries this weekend.
