Do you think I can burn calories if I go strawberry picking? I've done it once when we made a whole family affair with the kids but haven't gone in a few years. The husband goes every year. So he asked me... again.
My first response was to say no. I LOVE LOVE LOVE eating strawberries but picking them? Isn't that why I have a Trader Joe's so close to my house?
Before I could hit send on the text saying... ummm, no... I held back. Strawberry picking isn't that bad. At least the berries are larger.. fills the box faster. I'd be out in the sun although temps are supposed to be high 80s. And then there's the biggest reason of all... my husband is like the little red hen. If you don't do the work, you don't share in the rewards.
When he comes home with that box of gorgeous ripe sunkissed berries, my mouth waters and I start to dig in... until he sees me and slaps my hand. I'm not saying we don't get any but he rules over the portion control. If I go and pick my own, I should be able to eat however many I want. Plus, he puts quite a few thru the dehydrator. OMG! Just like candy and completely natural since we do it ourselves and nothing else is added to it.
Yeah... I think I will have to bite the bullet and do it. The rewards are just too great and hey, maybe I can burn some calories too.
