We love fruit! And we are celebrating National California Strawberry Day. Neuliven Health’s home state is kicking off strawberry season, and we couldn’t be happier! We love eating fruit that is in season, and we are huge fans of red berries.
Eating local produce is a passion of ours as it’s good for the environment and helps keep our diets fresh and changing throughout the year! Strawberries are a delightfully versatile fruit as they can be eaten raw without garnishment or made into a thousand wonderful, savory and sweet recipes.
The weather here in San Diego has been pretty gray and rainy recently. We’re not used to that in sunny Southern California. To get ourselves back into a sunny mindset, we’re sharing delicious strawberry recipes that will brighten even the dreariest day!
