Living the good life means enjoying life’s pleasures, big and small. Blueberries are one of those small pleasures that bring so much tasty joy. After all, what’s more satisfying than piercing the tender flesh of a blueberry and experiencing the gush of juicy sweetness?
Blueberries may be small but they pack a big nutritional punch. They are loaded with antioxidants and phytonutrients, which give them their namesake’s blue color. Just one cup contains more than 30% of the suggested daily intake of fiber but only 80 calories. They are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, and potassium.
Studies show that blueberries contribute to a healthy body, including a healthy heart, brain, gut, and insulin health. Blueberries are always a smart choice. You can always feel good about grabbing a healthy handful of blueberries!
To celebrate blueberry season, we’re partnering with the prolific blueberry growers at North Bay Produce, Inc. to bring you a special sweepstakes. You can win a $250 gift card to shop at your local grocery store! Four lucky winners will be selected!
