Spring Giveaway and a Strawberry Pie Print This
Spring marks the start of peak California strawberry season! This means folks across the country can find an abundance of fresh, colorful strawberries in local grocery stores and farmer's markets. It's also a great time of year to start eating healthier to get ready for beaches, hiking, biking - and even bathing suits!
Nutrition experts remind us that it's better to add healthy foods to a diet, rather than take foods away when trying to lose weight. The reason is, by eating more fibrous healthy fruits and veggies, we are less prone to crave processed snacks that are higher in calories and less nutritious.
To help spread that message, we are promoting our #JustAddStrawberries Facebook and Twitter campaign to demonstrate how easy it is to add a boost of nutrition, color and flavor by simply adding strawberries to everyday dishes you already enjoy. For example, a handful of strawberries added to any smoothie adds a healthy dose of vitamin C. Strawberries are also delicious in salads, sandwiches, parfaits and more!
And since we all know that it's perfectly fine to indulge in moderate servings of dessert when sticking to a healthy diet, we thought we'd share a wonderful strawberry pie, created by Closet Cooking, in celebration of spring. Check out this beauty!
To make spring even more special, we are giving away a $175 Williams-Sonoma gift card to help a lucky winner spruce up thier kitchen for spring and summer festivities! Just enter through the Rafflecopter widget below! The giveaway doesn't start until April 4th, so be sure to come back then!
