ENJOY!!!Nutritional Benefits:Strawberries: Strawberries contain a range of nutrients, with vitamin C being the most powerful. They also contain significant levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which fight free radicals. These antioxidant properties are believed to be linked to what makes the strawberry bright red. So what are these weird free radicals? Free radicals are elements from the environment and toxic foods that can damage cells, and they are thought to contribute to the formation of many kinds of cancer. Strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.Bananas: Bananas are good for your heart and nervous system. They contain a high dose of potassium - an essential ingredient to keep your heart and nervous system in good shape. They are good for your kidneys and bones due to their high potassium content. They act as mood enhancers or mild sedatives because they contain tryptophan (although it’s not one of the major sources, a medium still contains about 10.6 mg of tryptophan). Tryptophan is one of the 20 amino acids which are building blocks of proteins. Tryptophan helps the body to produce serotonin - which has a calming effect on the brain (creates a stable mood) and acts as a mild sedative. Bananas are good for your blood, they are one of the highest sources of naturally available vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 plays an important role in converting tryptophan to serotonin. Vitamin B6 is also essential for antibody production and to maintain a healthy immune response. Bananas are also a good source of dietary fiber.Apple Juice: Apple juice has a significant concentration of phenolics thought to help protect from many diseases associated with aging, including heart disease and cancer. Aside from other obvious fruit vitamins like vitamin C, apple juice also contains the mineral nutrient boron, which is thought to promote healthy bones. Make sure to read the label and get the unsweetened version.
Rice Milk: Rice milk is a great dairy alternative, whether you're allergic to milk, vegetarian, lactose intolerant or simply not crazy about the taste of cow's milk, one thing's for sure: there are now a lot of other options for you. It's packed with vitamin A, D and calcium. Rice milk is usually made from filtered water, brown rice syrup and brown rice starch. Since it has no animal content, it is a popular alternative for vegans as well as those who are lactose intolerant. It is slightly sweeter in taste, but low in fat so it can be used to replace cow's milk in cooking. If replacing cow's milk with rice milk in your diet, check that it has been fortified with calcium, vitamin D and vitamin A.
