Growing up, strawberries were my favorite fruit. My parents didn’t buy them often, so it was always a treat when they did. As a result, I developed a bit of an obsession with all things strawberry. Strawberry starburst candy, strawberry scented marker, strawberry miniature backpack (remember those?), and you know I had my essential 1980s Strawberry Shortcake doll. Further proof? At the horse camp I went to each summer, there was a patch of wild strawberries growing off the trail leading to the barn. Each day, I would get distracted by the ripe fruit and show up late. If a fruit won out over ponies, you know it held a special place in my heart!

And literally, strawberries did hold a special place in my heart – a nice, clean, atherosclerosis-free spot! That's because strawberries are a heart healthy superfood, rich in nutrients that protect the cardiovascular system.
