Summer berries…any way you buy them – fresh, frozen or dried – berries are a super food, everybody favorites!
Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries are sweet, easy to pop into your mouth as a snack and a much healthier choice than a candy bar.
All are anti-inflammatory, a good source of fiber, rich in flavonoids and carotenoids and offer immune-boosting antioxidant activity.
Because commercial strains of berries may be heavily sprayed with pesticides, try to buy only organic varieties of the berries.
