Strawberry salad

19. May 2023

This strawberry salad is not only colorful and delicious, it is super easy to make too.
Strawberries are one of my favorite berries and they are the first to ripe in the season. To me they kick start the season of colorful fruit, berries and vegetables.
Growing up we had strawberries with cream and a little sugar many times through out the season, but now I use them more in salads and for one of our favorite side dishes, Easy Strawberry Salsa

Packed with Essential Nutrients

Strawberries are an excellent source of essential nutrients that promote overall health. They are rich in vitamin C, which boosts the immune system, aids in collagen production, and protects against oxidative stress. Moreover, strawberries are packed with fiber, folate, potassium, and antioxidants, contributing to a well-rounded diet.
They are a powerhouse of antioxidants, which play a crucial role in neutralizing harmful free radicals in the body. These antioxidants and various phytochemicals, help protect cells from damage, reduce inflammation, and potentially lower the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer.

If you’re aiming to maintain a healthy weight or shed a few pounds, strawberries can be your secret weapon. These berries are low in calories and high in fiber, making them a satisfying choice for snacking. The combination of natural sweetness, fiber, and water content helps curb cravings and keeps you feeling fuller for longer, ultimately supporting your weight management goals.


Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, have long been a staple in many cuisines around the world. Not only are they versatile and delicious, but they also offer a wide array of nutritional benefits. Whether you enjoy them in hummus, salads, soups, or even roasted as a snack, incorporating chickpeas into your diet can be a smart and health-conscious choice.

They are an excellent source of plant-based protein, making them an ideal addition for vegans, vegetarians, or anyone looking to reduce their meat consumption, and provide a substantial protein boost to support muscle growth, repair, and overall body functions.

Fiber is an essential component of a healthy diet, and chickpeas deliver it in abundance. This soluble fiber aids in digestion, promotes feelings of fullness, and helps regulate blood sugar levels. Consuming an adequate amount of fiber also supports a healthy gut by nourishing beneficial gut bacteria.

Chickpeas are a nutrient powerhouse, brimming with essential vitamins and minerals. They are a notable source of folate, manganese, iron, phosphorus, and magnesium. Folate is vital for healthy cell division, while manganese plays a role in bone health and energy production. Iron is essential for transporting oxygen throughout the body, and magnesium supports various enzymatic processes and contributes to bone health.

My all time favorites, Microgreens


In recent years, there has been a growing trend in the culinary world – the use of microgreens. These tiny, vibrant greens are not only visually appealing but also pack a punch when it comes to nutrition. Microgreens are the young seedlings of vegetables and herbs, harvested just a few weeks after germination. Despite their small size, they are bursting with flavor and offer a myriad of health benefits. In this article, we will delve into the nutritional wonders of microgreens and why incorporating them into your diet can be a game-changer for your overall well-being.

Microgreens are known for their concentrated nutrient profile. Research suggests that microgreens can contain up to 40 times more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants compared to their mature counterparts. These miniature greens are particularly rich in vitamins C, E, and K, as well as beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Such high nutrient density makes microgreens an excellent addition to any diet, especially for individuals seeking a nutrient boost. Read more about these powerhouses here
