summer blueberries

Blueberries-In-PackBe sure to eat of plenty of blueberries this summer!   Blueberries are packed with fiber, manganese, copper, vitamin C & vitamin K, along with the amazing anti-oxidant anthocyanin.  Anthocyanin has been shown to boost brain health and may reduce risk for dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Support your local farmer and purchase blueberries at a farm stand which is easy to do since Hammonton, N.J. is considered the blueberry capital of the world. For the ultimate tasty experience go straight to the farm and pick fresh blueberries.  Blueberry picking season begins in June and typically ends late July.

Ideas for adding blueberries during the day:

  • Bring to work as a snack
  • Smother morning steel-cut oatmeal
  • Add to homemade whole wheat pancakes 
  • Create a fruit salad such as blueberries, strawberries & white nectarines)
  • Toss in a frozen smoothie with a banana
