lower high blood pressure. Overall, they

have been shown to moderately reduced

the risk of stroke.

If all this wasn't enough because

strawberries are very high in water -

around 91% - and contain a good serving

of fibre, they are great for digestion and

can help you to maintain a healthy gut.

It's clear that with these health

benefits strawberries make a great

addition to a healthy diet.

Endless ways to enjoy

When we think of strawberries, we might

imagine summer picnics or perhaps

watching tennis, but these super berries

are for more than just the summer.

When buying, Eat the Seasons

suggest that you look for berries that

are 'unblemished and bright red with

fresh-looking green leafy caps. The fruit

should be not too firm and not too soft.

Scent is an indicator of quality. Smaller

strawberries often have more flavour'.

Once you've picked the perfect

punnet, strawberries can be enjoyed

in a variety of ways. Eaten on their

own as a snack or dessert, added to

smoothies, milkshakes or yogurt, made

into jam or even diced added to salads

- they're delicious with feta cheese. As

an alternative try adding a small grind

of black pepper to raw strawbs. One of

those odd combinations that works! Let

your imagination run as you think of ways

to add them to your diet.

• Start your morning off with a sweet

and savoury breakfast. Add sliced

strawberries to waffles or pancakes and

you won't be reaching for a sweet-tasting

syrup. Strawberries are also a tasty

addition to porridge and muesli, providing

a lovely hit of fresh sweetness.

• Strawberries are great on their own

but mix with a handful of fresh, chopped

mint for a twist.

• Feeling thirsty? Make a healthy

strawberry lemonade by blending a

punnet of strawberries and pour the juice

into a jug, along with a little lemon juice,

water and a touch of sugar or sweetener.

Serve over ice and fresh mint sprigs. Or,

pep up your water by adding a few slices

of strawberry and a squeeze of lime to

your bottle.

• For a quick, indulgent treat, dip the

tips of the strawberries into melted dark

chocolate and roll in some chopped nuts.

Allow to set and tuck in.

And if you fancy a spot of gardening,

which brings many health benefits of its

own, they're easy to grow. You don't

need a lot of space - they'll even grow

from hanging baskets and out of hungry

slugs' reach - and look great as the plant

flowers and the fruit blooms ready for you

to enjoy.
