Last updated: June 15, 2023

Have you ever gone to your local strawberry farm and picked your own strawberries? From a nutrition standpoint, there’s nothing better or tastier than eating a fresh strawberry right off the vine. Strawberries provide a good amount of vitamin C, are low in calories, and are easier on your blood sugar than some other fruits. Purchasing locally grown fresh strawberries ensures that you are getting the most nutrition from your produce. This is a quick and versatile recipe that can pair with Greek yogurt for a light dessert, or you can place it on top of your favorite salad greens.
