Staying Hydrated & Healthy Eating while visiting a Strawberry Field

Say Good Morning to Healthy Eating, Strawberry Fields, and Staying Hydrated

Finding ways to keep our children eating healthy and happy during summer while also taking care of yourself, sometimes at the same time. This summer, good diet and exercise may help you achieve your goal weight outside of the gym, and the important goal is to keep your infant happy while staying active. Or is the main purpose to kill two birds with one stone? In any case, both are goals for me! Read along and find out ways visiting a strawberry field could keep you staying hydrated, healthy eating with available recipes, and coming along with us on our trip to one.

Visiting a Strawberry Field for our Day Trip to Springs Farm Market

We've moved to North Carolina, and if we haven't already, we're in for some scorching days. I enjoy finding activities that help me stay hydrated while also providing exercise benefits. I enjoy having fun while being in shape and active. I am also time-consuming, therefore I want to implement everything in one go.

On our way home, the girls and I stopped at a strawberry field named Springs Farm Market. Instead of using a treadmill, we were able to walk and pick strawberries while being hydrated in the burning heat. We had to use a box to store the strawberries, which were $4.99 per pound. We gathered more than two pounds of strawberries and ate a handful to remain hydrated. This was a great mini-day trip. We'll be visiting more this summer.

Healthy Eating with the Benefits of Strawberries

Strawberries include antioxidants, fiber, especially vitamin C, which can help your immune system and reduce your risks of getting sick when exposed to infections. They may also help reduce inflammation, control blood sugar, and protect against health issues like high cholesterol, cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Stay Hydrated-Freeze your Picked Strawberries

You can totally freeze strawberries!

Strawberries freeze well and may be used in many delicious dishes straight from the freezer. Follow the steps below so you can enjoy the strawberries you gathered for a little longer.

  • Rinse the berries.

  • Dry them lightly with a paper towel. Remove the stems. Cut larger berries in half.

  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Place the strawberries cut side down on the sheet, leaving space between each one.

  • Transfer the uncovered sheet to the freezer. Freeze for approximately six hours, or until hard.

  • Transfer the frozen strawberries to a freezer bag or container and place in the freezer.
