Strawberries: A Healthy Indulgence
(NAPSA) - There are ways to keep your sweet tooth from taking a bite out of your diet plan. Dietitians say the key is to find healthful ways to meet your need for sweets. They recommend guilt-free indulgences, such as California strawberries. These are naturally sweet, low in calories and sugar-and they pack a nutritional punch.
"When looking for simple snacking solutions for my clients, strawberries are at the top of my list," explains registered dietitian Deanna Conte. "They're loaded with folate, fiber, potassium, vitamin C and other antioxidants, which are critical for a healthy diet. California strawberries are also naturally low in sugar-making them the perfect indulgence for any diet-even low-carb ones."
California strawberries are in great supply throughout the year, making it easier to incorporate them into a nutritious healthy diet.
