I was only going to round-up 3 great recipes and make this a #3ThingsThursday post, but trying to select from a slew of mouth-watering ways to get berries in my belly was too difficult a task.
Recently, some of my fellow bloggers and I had a really fun U-pick experience at Didar Berry Farm in Delta, BC, organized by BC Blueberries. It was a great time and we all came away with buckets of the good stuff. I learned a lot, too, about how these low-calorie, little antioxidant balls are packed with Vitamins A, C and E, and dietary fibre. (Just ask any parent who has changed the diaper of a toddler who just ate a bowlful of blueberries). I was blown away that 1 cup of blueberries a day helps ward off and treat diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.
I’m just going to come out and say I am not really a fruit fan. I tell my kids, “Fruits and vegetables are Nature’s candy!” and the rule in the house is, if you want a snack, grab a fruit first. I don’t follow that rule but so far only my husband has caught on. However, I will eat blueberries by the handful. They are like little bursts of joy for me.
Aside from eating them on their own, there are so many other ways to add nutrition by way of blueberries, and some of my fellow bloggers have shared their favourite recipes. So, without further ado, here are some I think you’ll want to try!
Hope your summer is yummy! Thanks for stopping by!
