Well it’s only 4 more sleeps until we can enjoy 2 weeks of tennis at Wimbledon. 2 weeks of Murray Hysteria. Will he, won’t he? He is third seed, meaning that means if everything goes to form, he will face Novak in the semis. Never Mind, maybe next year!
One of the biggest sellers at Wimbledon is Strawberries. 28,000 kilos of strawberries are served at the tournament each year.
This fruit, or ‘runner’ (if we want to be pedantic about what it really is) has been associated with the tournament for many years.
Around June/July, in the UK Strawberries are in season. They are delicious, sweet and my youngest boy, Leweeeeee eat tons of them.
Strawberries are rich in vitamin C (immunity) and vitamin K (blood clotting). They also contain a good dose of Folic acid (reduces birth defects), manganese (bone and skin health) and potassium (lowers blood pressure).
The vibrant red colour of strawberries is due to large amounts of anthocyanidin, which also means they contain powerful antioxidants and are thought to protect against inflammation, cancer and heart disease.
If you were to eat a generous handful of strawberries this will provide you with around 40-50kcal and around 10g of carbs.
However, once you add the cream, this bumps up the calories. But then it becomes a taste sensation. Even more delicious!!!!
28,000 kilos of strawberries are served at the tournament each year.
So much bang for your buck – what I mean is there is so much nutrition for not a lot of calories and carbs. Get involved, and eat these super foods.
