Deep Dish Pizza

Strawberry Shortcake Supreme

Strawberry shortcake isn't just a sweet tooth remedy.  Once prized in ancient Rome for their medicinal uses, strawberries are recognized as having more vitamin C than some citrus fruits. They are also high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants, making them a natural means of reducing the chances of heart disease, high blood pressure and certain cancers.

Fresh raw cream is a living food offering vitamins and minerals to be utilized by the body, and contains beneficial bacteria and enzymes which are otherwise destroyed during pasteurization.  It is precisely these components of living foods that make them so valuable to our overall health.   These enzymes enable better digestion of macronutrients and better absorption of micronutrients while the beneficial bacteria promote intestinal health and a well-functioning immune system.  Raw cream is also recognized as one of the good for you fats that help you lose weight when following certain guidelines, by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig in their book, "Eat Fat, Lose Fat".
