July is Blueberry Month!
By: Jacqueline Gomes, RDN, MBA
Blueberries are tiny, but bursting with immune boosting antioxidants and more! They contain an excellent source of Vitamin C, which contributes to the development of tissues and promotes wound healing. They’re also high in Manganese, which helps the body process cholesterol and nutrients such as carbohydrates and protein.
- As an excellent source of fiber, fruits like blueberries add bulk to your diet, which may help keep you fuller, faster and longer!
- Use dried or fresh blueberries in salads or prepare a compote or salsa to serve with fish and meats.
- Add fresh or frozen berries to shakes, yogurt, hot or cold cereal and more!
