A strawberry is the fruit of a widely grown hybrid plant species of the genus Fragaria. Did you know the plant is actually a member of the rose family? Also, strawberries are the only fruit with their seeds on the outside.

And if anyone tells you that coconut milk and oil is not good for you, they are missing out on essential nutrients and benefits.

Coconut oil contains a unique combination of fatty acids that can have profound positive effects on health, including helping you to lose fat, gain better brain function, protect hair against damage, moisturize skin and function as sunscreen among many more.
