Paleo Triple Berry CobblerJul 01, 2022
Oh those little jewels of summer! Strawberries. Raspberries. Blueberries.
Sweet and juicy, we fight off our kids to stake our claim when we bring them home from the farmer’s market. Who knew that something so delicious could be so good for you? Rich in vitamin C, fiber, potassium, folate, and antioxidants, strawberries (as part of a healthy diet) can help reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, as well as make it super easy to maintain a healthy weight.
Look for berries that are plump and bright in color. If you’re going to use them right away, then store them on the counter. If you’re not going to get to them for a day or two (impossible – how could you resist?), then store them in the refrigerator. Rinse them under cool water right before you eat them. By the way, berries taste best when they are at room temperature.
Unfortunately, strawberries rank high on the “Dirty Dozen” list – the twelve fruits and vegetables that contain the highest levels of pesticides. Because of this, make sure to buy organic strawberries. You’ll pay a bit more, but it’s worth it.
Berries can be used in all kinds of recipes – both savory and sweet.
- Mix up a strawberry salsa to serve over chicken.
- Puree raspberries and then strain out the seeds to make a beautiful coulis (sauce) to go over pancakes, waffles, french toast, or ice cream.
- Toss strawberries in some balsamic vinegar and spoon over some ricotta cheese for an elegant dessert.
- When in doubt, melt some dark chocolate and dip the berries; place them on a plate and let the chocolate harden in the refrigerator.
All this talk of berries has put us in the mood for some!
