Ruby Tuesday - Strawberries

Join this meme:


"Strawberry" comes from the Old English word "streawberige." When I was a kid, I get to enjoy them only when someone comes back from Baguio, the city where strawberries grow abundantly because of the low temperature in the mountains. Most of the time, we'll only have bottled strawberry jam.

Now, my kids get to enjoy strawberries all year-round. Plain as this, with chocolate coating, or with banana and fine sugar.

A cup of strawberry (144 grams) contains approximately 45 calories (a 15 minute run on the treadmill and its gone) but strawberry is also listed as a negative calorie food, which means by eating a cup you lose 45 calories more. No need to run the mill. ;-)

mirage, those strawberries look delicious. To get them here at this time of year would be so expensive! You can post to Ruby Tuesday any time you like. I'm so happy to have you! Happy RT! :)

That looks so inviting. Really, eating strawberries would make you shed off the calories? Wow.. another good reason to eat strawberries!

My Ruby Tuesday entries are posted here and here. Drop by if you have the time. Happy Tuesday!

There is nothing as delicious as a ripe, red strawberry. Strawberries make excellent smoothies, which we blend up sometimes. A gorgeous fruit, too bad for us the locally grown ones will not be back until May-June. Your picture captures its sweetness!

I did not know that about strawberries - I guess they are just like baloney!

Happy Ruby Tuesday

Nice photo! It seems that strawberries are being grown in Florida and are available even in winter which I'm grateful for. I love strawberries!
