If you know me, you know I love dessert. Seriously, it’s my favorite part of any meal, and I have something sweet EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
My sweet tooth, however, is usually satisfied by something naturally low in sugar or at least made with non-toxic ingredients. That’s why I love recipes like this healthy strawberry cobbler! I call this “Strawberry Crunch Cobbler” because it’s a twist between a typical cobbler and crisp. With organic strawberries back at the market – this is super easy to whip up in no time! (See video tutorial below too!)
Did you know a typical conventional strawberry can have up to 54 pesticides on it? 9 are known carcinogens and 19 of them are toxic to honey bees. Without bees we don’t have plants and without plants…you know. Choosing and buying organic food is absolutely critical to reducing our exposure to pesticides and saving the earth!
