Snacking on Blueberries

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Blueberries are officially my favourite spring/summer fruit! My friend Sofia is all about healthy eating (she is also a chef). I love when she invites me to the local organic market and I get a two-hour-tour of  ins and outs to healthy living. I always feel so empowerd afterwards. So, last week we got tons of fresh blueberries that are one of the superfoods and are totally loaded with antioxidants to keep us all looking young and beautiful! (giggle). Since then I can't stop munching on them. Darlings, do you like snacking on fruits? How do you eat your blueberries? What's your favourite spring/summer fruit? xox

P.S:  Fun Fact: To get more nutrition from your blueberries, toss them into a steamy bowl of oatmeal instead of cereals as cold milk tends to block your body's absorption! Interesing:)
P.P.S: Totally want to make this maple blueberry parfait now.

I LOVE blueberries in the summer. Not only are they so good for you but they are oh so delicious. I love snacking on all kinds of fruit but I think the best is when I make myself a berry medley - a bowl full of fressh blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries. Yum! I also love mangoes and papayas.

I put dried berries (or bananas) in my husband's oatmeal every day! They're also one of my favorite snacks!

I ADORE blueberries. My favorite summer breakfast is plain Fage yogurt with blueberries, but after reading about the cold milk blocking the nutrients, I wonder if the yogurt does the same.

Paper Heart Girl said...

Ahhh, yes blueberries are one of my favourites! I'm a sucker for the superfood thing! xxx

Nommy, blueberries are mighty tasty in oatmeal..one of my favourite additions to oatmeal. They also go well in muffins! And so fun to pick in the summer. How lucky, you have a chef friend to spoil you!

My boyfriend and I make smoothies all summer long! We just freeze fruit (or buy it frozen) and mix it with juice. With the frozen fruit, you won't even need ice. I will even throw in a handful of lettuce or carrots- the fruit is so sweet you won't even know they're there!

I love the flavor but I have to have them with a little crunch like granola in yogurt or something. I'm just weird that way! Interesting about cold blocking the body's absorption!

Sunny & Star said...

I love these little yogurts that I pick up with blueberries in them. However, I've never been able to get blueberries in the produce section at the grocery store that I have liked.

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Yummy! I love blueberries...especially with yogurt :)

Annie said...

love blueberries, especially when you pick them yourself :) I like them a lot in smoothies!

Marissa said...

Bluberries are my favorite, too. I go through a pint every two days in the summer! Most of the time I just eat them play, but they're also delicious for breakfast in vanilla yogurt.
