This Thursday, I love… strawberries
How good are the strawberries right now?! It’s ridiculous! The other day I bought 3 punnets for $5 and they were juicy and beautiful and tasty. In fact, that’s them there ->>
I adore strawberries. I think they are my favourite fruit, although I did have a massive obsession with persimmons a while back. In high school I actually tried to start my own nickname as being Strawberry, I think a grand total of 2 people actually ended up calling me that and primarily because I was always putting on layer after layer of strawberry flavoured body shop lip balm (remember that stuff? Smelt like hubba bubba). In fact Strawberry was just one of my many failed nicknames over the years – the only one that has ever stuck that I was happy with (Tam, Tams, Tammy and Tantrum all stuck around for a long time, even though I hate them) has been T.
Anyway, back to strawberries. Did you know that strawberries are high in antioxidants, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and are sometimes called a “cancer fighting food”? But mostly they’re just super delicious and don’t leave me feeling a bit guilty (or a bit sick) when I consume a packet in one sitting. Not like another of my nicknames, the delicious Tim-Tam.
