Blueberries

Blueberry season has arrived! There are many reasons I love these sweet tasting little berries and it's not just because they hail from my home state (New Jersey)! Blueberries are not only delicious, but they also have a ton of health benefits!























Top 10 reason everyone should eat Blueberries:
  1. Blueberries have the highest antixodant capacity of all fresh fruits.
  2. Blueberries neutralize free radicals which can affect disease and aging in the body.
  3. Blueberries aid in reducing belly fat.
  4. Blueberries help promote urinary tract health.
  5. Blueberries have been proved to preserve vision.
  6. Blueberries aid in brain health.
  7. Blueberries help cure heart disease.
  8. Blueberries help improve constipation and digestion.
  9. Blueberries help fight Cancer.
  10. Blueberries are very good anti depressants.


Want a summertime treat? Throw a few blueberries in some ice trays to make blueberry ice cubes, and add to your drink of choice. Water? Perhaps vodka or some other cocktail! Throw a few in the bottom of your champagne glass. Top some strawberry gelato with a few blueberries, and don't forget about blueberries pancakes, and waffles. Just grab a handful and snack. The possibilities are endless!
