Did you know strawberries are a super fruit and can save your life?!

Eat up! They are low in sugar and have only 50 calories per serving (about 8 = 1 cup).

Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, folate, fiber and potassium. Potassium helps control blood pressure and fight stroke. Fiber helps control weight and keep you “regular” and with all that vitamin C, they can help you out during cold and flu season.

They are better than botox! Research has shown that strawberries contain nutrients that help protect and repair cells and reduce damage that leads to aging.

They are everywhere!California strawberriesare grown year-round, you can find them fresh or frozen at your local grocery store whenever you want them.

Last but definitely not least, they are yummy! Who cares if a fruit is good for you if it isn’t delicious? In fact, strawberries are ranked #1 as kids’ favorite fruit and adults love them, too! They are versatile as an ingredient in salads, soups, sweet and savory dishes…you name it. And best of all, they are pretty super tasting all by themselves.

¿Sabía usted que las fresas son una fruta super y puede salvar su vida?

Son saludables! Son bajas en azúcar y sólo 50 calorías por porción (alrededor de 8 = 1 taza).

Las fresas están llenas de vitamina C, folato, fibra y potasio. El potasio ayuda a controlar la presión arterial y accidentes cerebrovasculares (infartos). La fibra ayuda a controlar el peso y mantener a uno “regular” y con toda esa vitamina C, puede ayudarle durante la temporada de resfriados y gripe.

Son mejores que el botox! En investigaciónes ha demostrado que las fresas contienen nutrientes que ayudan a proteger y reparar las células y reducir los daños que provoca el envejecimiento.

Están por todas partes! Las Fresas de California se cultivan durante todo el año, se pueden encontrar frescas o congelados en el supermercado local en cualquier temporada.

Por último, pero no menos importante sin duda, son deliciosas! A quién le importa si una fruta es bueno para usted si no es deliciosa? De hecho, las fresas son número 1 como la fruta favorita de los niños y a los adultos les encantan, también! Son versátiles como ingrediente en ensaladas, sopas, platos dulces y salados lo que sea. Y lo mejor de todo, son deliciosas comiendoselas solas!
