Berry Sweet~

Red, delicious, juicy strawberries are in season over here now!

Every fruit store I came across has basketfuls of plump, firm strawberries. And they're sold at a very reasonable price too! Let me emphasize that again, VERY reasonab....I mean CHEAP! 1kg for only RM5-RM7!

RM5 for the smaller ones and RM7 for very large ones. I find the medium-sized ones to be more sweet and flavorful, thus i prefer them.

Have been having strawberries as part of my daily diet for the past 2 weeks. Berry berry sweet and delicious~ *slurps* (u guys can juz continue to jelez lar. wakaka)


Some tips and facts about Strawberries

-Once picked, they don’t ripen further. So, choose medium-sized berries that are firm, plump, and deep red, as they will provide the best taste and the highest nutrient density.

-They increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and thus reduce risk of heart cancer. It also fight against breast, cervical and esophageal cancer.

-Strawberries score in the fruit group with the highest antioxidant values, which fight free radicals. These antioxidant properties are believed to be linked to what makes the strawberry bright red.

-Just one serving, about eight strawberries, provides more vitamin C than an orange.


May I have silky smooth complexion soon XD (I wish!)
