Yum and double yum! This weekend I had my first fresh strawberries of the season. Is there anything more felicitous for spring?

While you may be eating your strawberries because they are lip-smackingly good, you are also doing yourself a wonderful favor nutritionally. Strawberries are high in vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and anti-arthritic phyto-chemicals. They are an excellent source of soluble fiber. Not only do they guard against anemia but they also help prevent gout, arthritis, kidney issues and cancer.

All that and delicious to boot? Yes!
