Berry Good News

According to a recent study in the Journal of Nutrition, daily snacking on fresh blueberries may help to prevent hardening of the arteries aka the main cause of heart attacks and strokes! The effectiveness of these little blue guys is most likely due to their high antioxidant content, which reduces inflammation that harms the walls of the arteries.

So what are you waiting for? Starting today, add some blueberries to your morning oatmeal, have them as an afternoon snack, or as a healthy dessert – whatever works for you!

  1. I do *love* blueberries in most anything. In summers, there’s an old blueberry cobbler recipe I found from Cooking Light that is so easy and delish! (I wish they were in season year round!)

  2. For real?? I can eat blueberries in muffins or scones with no problem! But raw and on their own I have a hard time with. But now knowing this I might just suck it up and eat them!
