We crave fats and sweets even though we know a diet rich in these isn’t good for us. So why not replace some of that sugary sweet craving with a naturally sweet fruit like blueberries?
Blueberries are a Super Food, high in antioxidants. In fact, these little blue drops are rated as the highest of any fruit in antioxidants. Blueberries are also high in fiber and vitamin C with a fair amount of Vitamin B-6, iron and Vitamin A.
Go one step further and try wild blueberries! These tiny gems pack more berries per cup than the cultivated variety. More berries equals more nutrient dense skin. These berries are just as sweet and juicy as their popular cousins.
It is a good idea to add a blueberry or two to your salads, cereal, yogurt or pancakes. Blueberries in sauces and baked goods kicks the nutrition up a notch. Anytime you can improve on a Family Favorite recipe to make it healthier it is a win for your whole family.
