Berries in general are a great addition to any healthy diet. Blueberries especially have a high antioxidant count that is more complete than any other fruit. These antioxidants are essential to cell renewal in the body. They are also low in sugar so they won’t spike your glycemic levels the way that some other high sugar fruits can. Plus a cup of fresh blueberries only has around 85 calories per serving. You can add them raw to a variety of foods such as steel cut oats in the morning, and to salads for later meals in the day. Eat them on top of greek yogurt, or even mixed into a smoothie anytime of the day for a healthy snack. They do a great job at masking the taste of green vegetables in your drink such as spinach or kale. There is also some proof that blueberries can reduce your stress level due to the high concentration of Vitamin C. In a per juice form it can even help with memory, and cognitive function. This is an especially good one for seniors to incorporate into their healthy diets to prevent a wide range of problems as they age.
