It’s National Strawberry Day! Today we pay homage to one of the
most popular fruits in the world. Strawberries are the first fruit to
ripen every year, so they are often called the “taste of spring.” The
bright red juicy berries are both delicious and incredibly good for you.
Each bite is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber.
People have been enjoying strawberries and their health benefits for
centuries. In fact, the Ancient Romans believed that strawberries could
cure fevers, fainting, inflammation, and several other ailments. They
also used the berries for teeth whitening!
To celebrate National Strawberry Day, enjoy a fresh bowl of
strawberries and cream, a strawberry smoothie, a piece of toast
smothered in strawberry jam, or a scoop of strawberry ice cream. Enjoy!
