🎉 Blueberries are another superfood!
🍓 Strawberries! My favorite spring and summer fruit 🍓
🍓 I'm lucky to live in the climate on the California central coast, that is perfect for growing strawberries! I've also been on a number of U-pick strawberry expeditions, too!
🍓 Strawberries are native to the Americas, Europe, and Asia.
🍓 Strawberries are packed with vitamins and minerals such as, Vitamins C and K, folate, potassium, manganese, and magnesium.
🍓 They are also fiber rich and are abundant in antioxidants and polyphenols.
🍓 Strawberries are better eaten raw, as they lose most of their natural vitamins when they're cooked. So strawberry preserves and jams don't have the same health benefits as raw.
Welcome to Farmer's Market Friday
Each week I will feature a vegetable, fruit, nut, seed, or herb.
