Are you properly and thoroughly cleaning your strawberries? Is there something you may be eating without knowing it? I watched THIS and I was pretty grossed out even though I do personally very thoroughly wash my strawberries. You have got to watch the video, it is a video that describes the most common insect found on strawberries. The video also teaches the proper method of cleaning strawberries.
In addition to washing them like this video demonstrates you could also gently wipe each strawberry with a damp cloth or paper towel. This may take a bit more time but it does ensure you remove anymore dirt on the strawberry. I personally use a fruit and veggie wash on all my fruit and veggies to clean them and I try to buy as much fresh organic locally grown produce as I can.
This summer we joined a CSA and we will be getting all our veggies from an organic farm, which I am super excited about, it start May 1st and I can’t wait! Well, hopefully you were already properly cleaning your strawberries and if you weren’t than you were ingesting all those wonderful insects, YAY, For You, Yum, added protein=}
