The bulk department can be a little intimidating for the uninitiated. When I first started shopping at Whole Foods Market®, all of the bins, item numbers, tiny writing utensils and the freeform, help yourself method made me a little nervous.

Here’s a typical pre-kid meal scenario: my husband and I come home from working all day, crack open a cold one and meet in the kitchen to create a “quick-n-easy” meal inspired by whatever celebrity chef we happened to see on TV that week. Sounds ideal, right? Here’s the catch: it’s nine at night! “How will we ever feed our (future) kids?” I groan over the oven-roasted rutabaga.

Is there anything more amazing than a basket of sweet, perfectly ripe strawberries? I don’t think so. Berry Good for You Nutritionally speaking, strawberries get high marks! They support heart health and are packed with powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, which help keep cholesterol levels healthy. Eating just eight strawberries gives your body more vitamin C than an orange while also providing manganese and fiber. Strawberries are naturally low in sodium, low in calories and, like most fruits and vegetables, do not contain cholesterol or fat.

My husband is a great dad. When we moved from a condo to a house a few years ago, one of the most important things in the search was a nice yard for our son to enjoy, and a place where he could grill with ease. If the dad you’re celebrating on Father’s Day (hint: Sunday, June 16!) love to grill, give him what he really wants…something delicious to sear over the flames.
