There is nothing better than freshly picked strawberries, so when they’re in season, bring some home. They are not only sweet and delicious, but also loaded with immune-boosting vitamin C. Strawberries make a great snack on their own, or you can add a dose of antioxidants by making Chocolate Ladybugs, a low-fat treat that takes just minutes to create. We use semisweet chocolate chips to create the spots on our "bugs."

- 5 medium-sized strawberries
- 20 semisweet chocolate chips
Cut the leaves and tops off the strawberries, then cut each strawberry in half lengthwise. With your fingers, gently push 2 chocolate chips, pointy side down, into the rounded side of each strawberry half to create the ladybug's spots.
