Strawberries are one of our most versatile fruits and they're loaded with nutritional value. In fact, one cup of fresh strawberries contains 135% of the adult recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, as well as significant amounts of potassium, phosphorus, and fiber, and only 55 calories. Strawberries (and blackberries) are also high in an anti-cancer substance called ellagic acid.
