I love Blueberries

Blueberries are among my favorite foods. One of those ‘Superfoods’ you hear about, and yes they truly are a nutrient powerhouse, in a little burst of sweet sunshine.

1 Cup packs 19% of your RDA Vitamin C 32% RDA Vitamin K and 14% of your RDA of fiber. Full of energy fueling carbohydrates and other essential nutrients including Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, and for those calorie counters…is only going to tick off a mere 84 calories (true energy calories) in your food log.

But probably my favorite thing about blueberries is that they are on the higher end of antioxidant capacity of all the most commonly eaten fruits and veggies! Helping to increase antioxidant levels in the body, neutralize free radicals, reducing DNA damage.

I could go on and on about how awesome they are, but you get the picture. Eat blueberries! Try my Blueberry Muffins!
