Eating for Your Health: Blueberries

Blueberries and Cream Oatmeal

The blueberry is high in fiber, vitamin C, and rank the highest in antioxidant content of any fruit.  They don’t ripen until the middle of summer, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying them in the winter.  Frozen and dried blueberries are readily available year round.  Both are great sprinkled on cereal or salads or just by themselves.  Just remember that when measuring blueberries by volume, the dried ones have many more calories.  

One of my favorite ways to eat blueberries in the winter is to add them to this blueberries and cream oatmeal.  It is a quick, easy, yummy, and healthy breakfast.
