Grilled Chicken Salad with Strawberries and Feta
Nutrition Fact: May 20th was National Strawberry Day! Strawberries are full of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer (breast, cervical, esophagus, and colon) fighting anthocyanins and flavonols (antioxidants). They are also a great source of vitamin C (1 cup provides 113% of DRI), a powerful antioxidant that can help fight off illness, heal wounds, aid in the absorption of iron, and maintain strong teeth and bones.
