Blueberries for Better Health

Affiliate links are used in this post.

More than Just a Taste Bud Tickler

Blueberries are one of my most favorite things to add to a morning smoothie. Naturally sweet and tasty, their benefits go much further than just making your taste buds smile! While they can be decadent in muffins, pies and other pastries, you'll get the most nutritional value when you ingest them in their natural state. If you looked inside my fridge right now, you'd find five pounds of these bitty berries, beckoning you to dig in!

Health Benefits 

The health benefits of these berries have been touted far and wide. Their antioxidant, cardiovascular, cognitive, eye health and blood sugar benefits can help support one's overall wellness.  You can read the good news in this thoughtful and research-based post on blueberries by whfoods.org.

if being completely sugar-free is important to you. Always read your labels! Fresh is BEST, but dried will still offer
a better nutritional boost than candy!
