The Irony of Strawberries

What could possibly be ironic about strawberries?  They’re very healthy for people because they are loaded with all sorts of nutrition such as a good amount of Vitamin C.  They also contain phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamins B5 & B6, copper, and omega-3 fatty acids.   And when they are sweet, they are absolutely delicious!  Yet, the irony is that strawberries, though being one of the healthiest foods nutritionally, are listed in the top ten worst foods containing pesticides.

Because of these pesticides, I search the weekly food ads and look for organic strawberries on sale.  I can usually find one store nearly every week or every other week that has them on sale.  The irony is greatly reduced when eating organic strawberries!

  1. Yummm strawberries sound good! I think strawberries with vanilla ice cream definitely make my top 3 dessert list. 🙂
