Strawberries rock...

Not all diets have to taste bad... Strawberries are proven to be more satisfying than other foods as they lower cholesterol levels. They also provide the below health benefits:

1. They are healthy!

As they contain valuable vitamins and nutrients. Just eight strawberries provide more Vitamin C than one orange does-about 160% of the daily recommended amount. Not only are they yummy... they are also full of fibe, and potassium-with just only 50 tiny calories per serving and 8 grams of sugar.

2. They will keep you young... hows that for a benefit!

Strawberries are packed with super cancer fighting and anti aging antioxidants. They ward off nasty cronic diseases, and will promote optimal health! Strawberries rank about 10th among the top ten fruits in relation to the amount of antioxidants they contain.

3. They may prevent arthritis... and you don't want that!

In a recent study conducted of more than 20,000 people, found that people who ate healthy foods such as strawberries were more than three times more likely to remain arthritis free than those who didn’t.

4. They are great for your skin... show off your strawberry complexion!

Strawberries are classified as a skin cleansing food, they can also help with certain skin disorders. All the better reason to eat strawberries!

5. They are good for you teeth... so smile!

As Strawberries are naturally low in sugar, in cutting them in half and rubbing them on your gums has even been shown to remove tarter from the teeth and strengthen and heal gums.

In this country Strawberries are thought of as mostly a summer food, due to the season, but by the power of airmail... they can be enjoyed year round.

Strawberries are great served alone, in dishes such as puddings, in smoothies, with yogurt or even served with champagne! Always keep a bag of frozen strawberries in the freezer, so they are always on hand!
