Berry Benefits

“A little work, a little play, all adds up to a berry nice day”. This is one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters, Strawberry Shortcake. Berry benefits are very real, so my updated version of this saying would be something like this: “A little work, a little play, make sure to eat your berries every single day”.

Berry Benefits

Berries will support total body health and are such a great food choice because of their nutritional density, and low sugar content. Eat fresh and organic whenever possible. Eat them frozen, add to smoothies, cereal, baked goods, and when in doubt, eat with dark chocolate! 🙂

This is the Berry must list. They are ALL high in antioxidants, and ALL great for immune health, and surprisingly, most are great for cardiovascular health too. We left those 3 qualities off each description so we could highlight some of the other unique benefits of each individual type of berries.
