In addition to being protein packed, you’ll get a handful of other nutrients that will do your body good.
Strawberries, like other berries, are an incredible and powerful superfood. They are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that ward off cancer-causing free radicals by inhibiting tumor growth and decreasing inflammation in the body. They also contain phytochemicals, which naturally occur in plants giving them their rich color or unique scents. Studies have shown that phytochemicals may help prevent the effects of aging, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Strawberries also have a high water content that will help keep you hydrated and they will help regulate your blood sugar since they are a low-glycemic carbohydrate and high in fiber.
Agave Nectar is a natural sweetener making it a good alternative to regular white granulated sugar. Although agave is still a sugar, it does have health-promoting properties. Its sweetness comes primarily from a complex form of fructose called inulin, a dietary fiber, which gives it a favorable low glycemic profile. You’ll get sweetness without the unhealthy blood sugar spike and sugar rush that occurs with high-glycemic refined sugars.
