Spring is in full swing and with it comes fresh strawberries. Packed with vitamin C and potassium strawberries are a healthy choice for snacking. Try mixing sliced berries with vanilla yogurt, or adding crushed berries to your favorite muffin mix. I remember Grandma used to add sugar for extra sweetening, and the syrupy mix made a delicious topping for her poundcake. Unfortunately, the added sugar brought added calories. Personally, I think strawberries are sweet enough just as they are, picked from the vine. Some say strawberries dipped in chocolate are an aphrodisiac...hmmm...I always thought it was the chocolate!
