STRAWBERRIESÂ are available all year round, peaking in the the summer months from November to February.Â They are packed with antioxidants to nourish your body inside (think immunity) and out (think wrinkle free!)
FOOD ACTIVES:Â Â Vitamin C (just 100g of strawberries has a whole day’s supply), fibre, folate, manganese and iodine.
BEAUTY BOOST:Â The vitamin C in strawberries gives your skin a boost in collagen which improves elasticity and resilience for younger, healthy looking skin. For those prone to breakouts, strawberries are naturally rich in salicylic acid- a common ingredient in commercial acne creams.
COOK:Â Always a favourite on deserts. Try as a topping on yoghurts, add to summer salads, freeze in juice for a healthy ice-pop or work them into a parfait!
TIP:Â Â Eight strawberries will give you more Vitamin C than an entire orange.
