Warm Blueberry and Snow Pea Salad
This is a Sponsored campaign with North Bay Produce. All opinions are our own.
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!
You can count on North Bay Produce to provide the freshest blueberries you’ll find all year. With growers located across the Western Hemisphere, it’s always blueberry season somewhere for North Bay Produce. They’re always shipping fresh, in-season blueberries to a major retailer near you!
