Carolyn Bell, RDN – Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
It’s strawberry season, and Market Basket offers fresh, juicy strawberries that are sure to delight your taste buds. But don’t stop with taste – strawberries are super healthy and just one cup contains enough vitamin C intake for an entire day. These ripe berries also contain antioxidants, which are compounds found in plant foods that help protect cells from damage that can lead to cancer. Strawberries are low in calories, and good for weight management. There are only 54 calories per cup of berries – which are easy to rinse for snacking, or use as toppings for yogurts and oatmeal. Shop our berries with delight, and let our produce managers know – “the dietitian sent me for strawberries”!
