I recently bought these organic strawberries at the Super Target just down the street from me. I rinsed them well and then enjoyed them, all on their own, fresh, for breakfast. Oh rapture! I have to admit, I had nearly as much fun taking sunny, window-sill pictures of them as I did eating them! Is that wrong? I suppose a valid aspect of the joy of fruit is simply their beauty of color, shape, and variety. They feed the soul, as well as the body!
Of course, if you can purchase organic, do so. DoctorOz.com reports that pesticides really stick to strawberries, more so than to other fruits and veggies, and we certainly don't want any pesticides in our tummies, no sir. Better to support organic farming operations anyway--better for the field workers, better for Mother Earth, and better for us! It's good karma!
The only thing that could have possibly enhanced my fruit meal further was if the strawberries were in-season, local, and ripe-from-the-garden! But Summer will be here soon... Oh, I can hardly wait!
Well, what are you waiting for? Go on! Go get some organic strawberries and enjoy them! :)
I married my wonderful Jordan in November 2003. We have no children. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Vegan. I love hearts and rainbows. I love to smell beautiful blooming flowers. I love to read about investing and healthy living, but I also enjoy a good yarn. I love to play Nintendo (on both old and new game systems). I love to eat (especially fresh garden tomatoes.) I love to jog. I love organizing stuff. I love to smile. I love to laugh. I love to sing. When I was two years old, my mother wrote of me, "She has gobs of rhythm and likes to jive." (updated August 2012)
