Few foods pack as much punch as the blueberry. I love these little bursts of flavor. They’re a great source of fiber. They’re packed with vitamin C. They reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. And it’s just so easy to work these little blue dynamos into your diet.
● Obviously, you can throw them into smoothies;
● You can put them on yogurt;
● They work great on salads;
● On oatmeal or cereal,
● If you have little ones, try giving them frozen blueberries. They’re a delicious treat on their own and available year-round.
So do yourself–your body–a favor, and eat blueberries. There’s a reason they’re called the king of antioxidants.
They even have a little crown!
