Ninja, I blend together 5 strawberries, a scoop of chocolate protein powder and a cup of coconut milk. Starting my day the healthy way gives me the energy and nutrients I need to make it through my day without getting that mid morning fatigue. For lunch, I throw together a spinach salad with strawberries, grilled chicken and a light lemon poppy vinaigrette dressing. Eating that many strawberries, means a quart lasts me no longer that two days. Fresh from the grocery store, I just brought home 4 pounds of strawberries! It's only appropriate that this week's recipe would feature this popular red fruit.
