Delicious and filling, this blueberry smoothie breakfast keeps me satisfied until lunch. Try it!
Lots of studies have shown that wild grown blueberries are a very healthy fruit choice and one of the most nutritious foods you can buy. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components of these superfruits have been scientifically connected to heart health, brain health, gut health, cancer prevention, reduced risk of diabetes, and urinary tract health. Wild blueberries have high concentrations of an antioxidant called polyphenols (along with other plant-based foods like dried peppermint, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, black currants, and hazelnuts). Wild blueberries contain 30% less sugar than highbush blueberries. And did you know you can get 25% of the RDA of fiber just by eating 1 cup of of these little beauties? It’s true.
I buy my wild blueberries in the freezer section of my grocery store. Make sure the bag states “Wild Blueberries.” I love having these healthy and nutritious berries on hand whenever I want them.
