Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken

-

Strawberries bring back so many good memories of summer. Sunny days, bare feet, and running in the sprinkler seem to mesh together with the sweetness summer strawberries bring.

I am not alone when I think strawberries are a pretty sweet. They are one of the most popular refreshing and healthy treats on the planet. There over 600 varieties of strawberries, and are ranked among the top 10 fruits and vegetables for antioxidant content.

Perhaps that’s why we love them so much. We just feel better when we eat them. And not just that, increased fruit and vegetable consumption, in general, is associated with healthy skin and hair, more energy, and lower risk for heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

So, I say indulge a little. Add strawberries to your meals and snacks. You may even turn them into a decadent dessert to share with friends. Just make sure to enjoy the summer sweet treat that is also good for you.
