Eating whole foods with a purpose.
It is almost strawberry picking season, and I am on the edge of my seat for it. Not only is berry picking a fun family activity, but it is a great experience to see where your food is grown. Whether you get your berries from a local farmer’s market or a berry farm, you can’t put a price tag on meeting the people who harvest what you are eating. This becomes a unique opportunity to a ask questions on tips for picking, learn fun new recipes, and to learn what farming practices are being used.
Strawberries are such a delicious snack or addition to any meal. You can toss them into smoothies, make a delicious dessert, add them into your salads, or cover them in chocolate. My recent favorite has been putting them into my water. I have been pairing them with different herbs from our garden, and they pretty much go with any herb at this point.
Different ways I incorporate strawberries into my diet are through flavored water, smoothies, salads, and as a fun topping to protein pancakes. The sky is the limit! Browse below for some simple ideas to include this powerhouse fruit into your day. Eating whole foods is the perfect way to nourish your body and to feel well.
