As the warmer weather arrives, so does the berry season...and one of my favourites is BLUEBERRIES. Not only are blueberries sweet and tasty, but they also are full of disease-fighting nutrients and are one of nature’s superfoods. All fruits with a purple-blue colour are especially rich in a flavonoids that are natural plant chemicals and very powerful antioxidants. They help combat the effects of pollution and toxins in general. They are also anti-inflammatory, help reduce allergic reactions and have been shown to keep blood capillaries healthy, which is useful in conditions such as varicose veins or if you find you bruise easily. Flavonoids also help potentiate the qualities of vitamin C, which is another nutrient in blueberries, and because of this they are helpful for boosting your immunity.
Blueberries are a good source of fibre too. And they’re very versatile, equally good in smoothies, with yoghurt, in fruit salads, on cereal or as snack.
