Your best tips for raw food safety post transplant.
I was never told not to eat them (strawberries) either. And I do rinse, rinse, rinse, the strawberries and blueberries. Yummy. It is the fresh raspberries and blackberries that I am concerned with because they are hard to rinse.

@rosemarya I rarely eat raspberries and blackberries for that reason too. I feel much more confident with the white vinegar wash.
@jolinda I heard back from my transplant team, this was their response:
“Fruit is fine for you to eat at this point. We recommend not eating fresh fruit/veggies only if your WBC level is very low (which yours in continually ok).”
I had included berries in my question. I think you may have misinterpreted something that @rosemarya said since she also was told she could eat them. Always better safe than sorry though.
Enjoy some luscious strawberries. It was sure a relief to me to know that I was not doing something that could be bad for me.
