here at fitlosophy, you know we like to #eat5 by getting in at least five servings of fruits + veggies each day, but this little healthy habit of ours is made even easier come strawberry season! not only is this ruby-red fruit sweet + juicy, it’s also low in sugar and loaded with nutrients. in fact, just one 1-cup serving contains half your daily recommended vitamin C, not to mention these beautiful berries are brimming with antioxidants that promote eye health and help prevent cancer. but wait, there’s more! they also help ward off wrinkles, lower bad cholesterol, reduce inflammation, help regulate blood pressure and boost your fiber intake.
and one of our favorite ways to enjoy this vitamin + mineral-packed powerhouse? this smoothie bowl. it’s packin’ all the major strawberry flavor and chocolatey-shell goodness you enjoy in a really delicious chocolate-covered-strawberry, with none of the dairy or refined sugar. sounds like a pretty sweet deal to us.
