If you follow me on my social media platform, you will be jazzed how much my cravings for strawberries has been off the hook over the weekend. I wanted to switch things up of how well or how much you can totally do with strawberries.

Here are some of the Pros of having strawberries in your meals.

1. Anti-aging properties
Strawberries are filled with biotin, which helps build strong hair and nails. They also contain the antioxidant ellagic acid, which protects the elastic fibers in our skin to prevent sagging.
2. Good for weight loss
The compound nitrate found promotes blood flow and oxygen in our body, which is great for weight loss.
3. Promote eye health
Eating three or more servings of fruit like strawberries may lower the risk of macular degeneration, a condition resulting in vision loss.
4. Low in Calories – High in Fiber
One cup contains only 54 calories.
5. Boost short term memory
The anthocyanins boost short term memory by 100 percent in eight weeks.
6. Helps burn stored fat
The red coloring contains anthocyanins, which stimulate the burning of stored fat. When a group of animals was fed a high-fat diet along with anthocyanins, they gained 24 percent less weight than the animals eating the high-fat diet without added anthocyanins.

Here are my top three favorite ways to enjoy this fruit.

1. Strawberry + oats breakfast bowl

OATS

There is nothing more filling that oats with warm milk -sliced strawberries, rasp berries, sliced bananas with one tea spoon of sugar.

2. Strawberry -rasp berry – banana -smoothie bowl.
