I calculate that the bowl contained 90 calories, 9g carbs, 2g fiber, and 6g fat. All of the fat and the majority of the calories came from the heavy cream. Conventional diet wisdom would say skip the cream, save some calories, avoid the fat. This is the same conventional diet wisdom that many Americans have tried to follow for 40 years, resulting as some would claim in an ever-fatter nation and epidemics of high blood-pressure and diabetes. Perhaps it’s time for a new approach.
No shortcake, no cereal, no grains of sugar sprinkled over the top.
Berries and cream, spoon and bowl. Simple.
Tastes good, too!
