We are at the tail end of blueberry season and so I thought that I would encourage everyone to indulge in one of my favorite super foods before it is too late!
Why Blueberries? Oh let me count the ways….
sweet, succulent, delicious, nutritious, great to eat alone, great to eat with cereal, yogurt, ice cream, in a smoothie, dipped in chocolate, with bananas, by the spoonful, one by one, shall I go on?
AND….these tiny little blue gems pack a potent punch, ranking one of the highest of any fruit for antioxidants and one cup delivers 14% of the recommended daily dose of fiber and nearly a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.
AND…blueberries are also low in calories, fewer than 100 for a full cup.
AND….Their distinct blue hue is due to their high anthocyanin content, which is fabulous for your health.
So indulge and enjoy the benefits now!
AND…and you can also freeze these gems so that midwinter, when they are scarce and you are having a blueberry craving, voila, they are ready for you and still fabulous!
