The Secrets Of.......The Blueberry
I am fortunate that my son and I love blueberries. I never realized how healthy they truly are. There is some power packed in those little guys!
With just 80 calories per cup and virtually no fat, blueberries offer many noteworthy nutritional benefits. Here’s the skinny on blueberry nutrition: Blueberries are packed with vitamin C.
In just one serving, you can get 14 mg of Vitamin C – almost 25 percent of your daily requirement. Vitamin C aids the formation of collagen and helps maintain healthy gums, teeth and capillaries. It also promotes iron absorption and a healthy immune system.
Blueberries are dynamos of dietary fiber.
Research has shown that most of us don’t get enough fiber in our diets. Eating foods high in fiber will help keep you regular, your heart healthy and your cholesterol in check. A handful of blueberries can help you meet your daily fiber requirement. What a tasty way to eliminate this worry from your day!
Blueberries are an excellent source of manganese.
Manganese plays an important role in bone development and in converting the proteins, carbohydrates and fats in food into to energy – a perfect job for blueberries
Blueberries are leaders in antioxidant activity.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), blueberries are near the top when it comes to antioxidant activity per serving (ORAC values). Their capacity is impressive – click here to see how the antioxidant activity in blueberries compares to other foods4. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals — unstable molecules linked to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s. Substances in blueberries called polyphenols, specifically the anthocyanins that give the fruit its blue hue, are the major contributors to antioxidant antioxidant activity! WOW! So you need to go buy some blueberries right now.

Why Not Paint With Blueberries?
Did you now that July is National Blueberry Month? Enjoy this summer berry with a little taste-n-paint project (just be sure to strip your kids down first – and put a generously sized splat mat under your “painting” surface).
What you need:
Pour the pint of blueberries into the glass bowl, add water and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Berries should be warm and mushy. Mash them with a fork (your kids will love helping with this part!) Then, tape the poster board onto your table or floor to create a stationary painting surface and let your kids finger paint with the juice. Voila: A berry blue (and messy!) picture.
