Strawberries are super nutritious, and among the berries especially recommended for women’s heart health. I have always liked strawberries, but now that I’m pregnant I crave them all the time! And they’re a healthier choice than donuts, the other food I’ve been craving.
I learned a few interesting facts about strawberries with a quick Internet search:
- On average, there are 200 seeds in every strawberry.
- They are a good source of folic acid, potassium, and fiber.
- They are a member of the rose family.
So many of us jump to Google for online information, but are we getting the most out of our searches?
Google recently launched a website called Search Education, designed to help students, but also a good tutorial for anyone trying to improve search skills. Lesson plans include picking the right search terms and evaluating the credibility of sources. There are webinars, courses on power searching, and a daily challenge to help you practice your technique.
For more research-oriented searching try Google Scholar to find scholarly literature. And don’t miss our Google Scholar class on Friday!
My favorite ways to eat strawberries?
I love strawberry shortcake, strawberries on top of yogurt and strawberry-rhubarb pie. But by far my favorite way to eat strawberries is fresh from the farm! Try adding them to your spinach salad too!
