However, before you reach for another bowl of these red delicacies, read this article. It's about your health.

Not everyone is aware that strawberries can be harmful. Contraindications to their consumption are primarily allergies and some intestinal problems, as well as taking certain medications.

If in doubt, it is always worth consulting your doctor. However, even completely healthy people may experience unpleasant consequences from eating these fruits. And all because of a common mistake.

First of all, it is worth remembering that strawberries spoil very quickly, which is easy to overlook. Therefore, always carefully examine the fruit before eating it, especially those you intend to use, e.g. in a cocktail.

Any, even slight, traces of mold will disqualify the product. We should also avoid soft and bruised strawberries with dark spots. It's easy to get poisoned. It's a waste of time and health for stomach upsets.

Another obvious fact that not everyone remembers is that strawberries must be washed thoroughly before eating. Importantly, we should do this only immediately before eating. They should not be washed and then placed in the refrigerator.

One of the most popular dishes using these fruits is, of course, pasta with strawberries. And for dessert, strawberries with sugar and cream. This combination is delicious, but be careful how much you sweeten it. By pouring white powder recklessly, we turn a healthy meal into a carbohydrate bomb. And if there is a lot of fatty cream, then such a delicacy no longer has much in common with a rational diet.

Strawberries themselves are very sweet and there is no need to add sugar. And even if we don't like such food at first, give it some time. It's a matter of habit. It is worth building healthy habits, even if it is difficult at the beginning.

Strawberry dishes, especially if the fruit has been cut or crushed, should be eaten immediately after preparation. The longer they wait, the more value they lose. After a few hours, only sugar may remain.

Not everyone is aware, but you don't have to throw away the stems from strawberries. They are not only edible, but also healthy. And their taste can be a nice break to the sweetness of the fruit. You can also successfully use them for salad, soup or sauce.
