Nutritious Foods: Strawberries

Today we talk about a natural masterpiece…the strawberry!


Intensely red with sparkling notes, strawberries are a delicious super food with extraordinary health benefits and remind us of the first Run 5.30 Brighton event : )


Here are some of their healthy properties:


  • Full of natural antioxidants and vitamin C, helping to prevent inflammatory processes
  • Rich in potassium, for a powerful diuretic effect
  • Deliciously sweet… but with only 27 kcal per 100 g!


As we’re entering the glorious British strawberry season, enjoy them at their best when they’re packed full of nutrients (early June to August).
