Strawberries are high in antioxidants, and extremely high in vitamin C! A bona fide super food, strawberry consumption can lower the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. White chocolate does not have the same health benefits as it’s counterpart. So, we indulge here. Just be sure the white chocolate you buy is good quality made with cocoa butter as its primary source of fat. And read labels carefully to ensure it doesn’t contain any trans fat.
