Now think about it, when you think of strawberries and lemons what is the first thing that comes to mind. When I hear about those particular fruits I think of strawberry lemonade, spring and summer, beaches, refresh, and vacation. Strawberries have a lot of great things in them including vitamins, antioxidants, and more. They also help keep blood sugar at a balance, are great for weight loss, and they protect your heart by lowering the risk of heart disease. Lemons are also great to have in your system as well even though they are very sour. They are also packed with vitamins, calcium, iron, fiber, potassium and more. Lemons can also give your immune system a boost, freshen breath, and help fight viral infections.
