#8aDay of Strawberries

Some think the end of summer means the end of juicy red strawberries. Not true! California strawberry farmers produce and ship strawberries year-round because of the temperate weather along the California coast.

So here's a delicious and healthy reminder to think strawberries for back-to-school, fall festivities, and even winter recipes. Check out this beautiful, any time of year recipe for Spicy Strawberry Gazpacho!

Strawberries are low in sugar and calories and provide a unique combination of essential nutrients, dietary fiber and phytochemicals. Clinical research suggests eating just a serving of eight strawberries a day may improve heart health, help manage diabetes, support brain health, and reduce the risk of some cancers.

One serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange and is packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate and fiber. With year-round availability, California strawberries are a healthy and versatile fruit to enjoy every day.
