I love strawberries...

Strawberries! How I love to eat them. Now that the weather is warmer, there are more strawberries on sale than before. Most stalls along the route to LSE sell the berries at GBP1 for 2 packets.'s some fun facts about strawberries that I found on the net

Strawberries give your body the nutrients (antioxidants, folate and potassium) it needs to maintain a healthy heart.

Ever eaten a double strawberry? Legend holds that if you break it in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you will soon fall in love with each other.

Strawberries have anti-cancer compounds. Those eating the most strawberries were three times less likely to develop cancer compared to those eating few or no strawberries.

In animal studies, researchers have found that strawberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related related declines in brain function. Could work for human as well I guess..
