1 to 2 cups daily
Purple grapes, cranberries, boysenberries, raspberries, strawberries, and all other berries including frozen and dried.
WHY THEY ARE SO AMAZING
One serving of blueberries provides as many antioxidants as five servings of carrots, apples, broccoli, or squash
Berries seem to slow and even reverse many of the degenerative diseases associated with an aging brain.
Too many others to list:)
Remember that all berries are full of amazing benefits. Blueberries are just the best overall. So if you have to choose one, pick blueberries but don't be afraid to mix it up!
HOW TO INCLUDE THEM IN YOUR DAILY DIET
Put them in your cereal
Put them in a shake or smoothie.
Add them to pancakes (My favorite pancake mix is from Arrowhead Mills...Multigrain Pancake and Waffle Mix. Another good choice is their Buckwheat Pancake and Waffle Mix.
I have a cup of yogurt (another super food) (I buy Stonyfield Non Fat French Vanilla) with a cup of blueberries for my mid morning snack. This is usually right after my workout so I make it before I go and put it in a cooler to eat when I am finished. Since we usually run errands after my workout, it's a great snack to have with me to avoid being hungry. The boys are always happy to help me eat them. I put them in Canyons cereal almost every morning. A good addition to rice cereal as well for your infant when they are ready to eat them.
NOTE: *Super Walmart carries Dole Frozen Wild Blueberries in a huge bag for a good price. They also carry Stonyfield yogurt for the best prices!
