Blueberries for Breakfast

Learn why and how to eat these sweet yet tart, tiny little nuggets of health.

A few years ago, I started eating blueberries almost daily (hey, sometimes I run out of them!) for their health benefits.

If you’re looking to add a superstar food to your daily meal lineup, try blueberries, which are in season April to September. After learning about the health benefits of blueberries, including that they’re high in fiber and antioxidants and may help decrease cognitive decline, I started eating a dose of them every day in 2017. I didn’t like them at first, but now I usually don’t go a day without eating them. I even went to National Blueberry Festival in South Haven, Michigan, in 2018, to celebrate these sweet yet tart, tiny little nuggets of health.

4 ways to eat blueberries:

  • Mix them in gluten-free muffins or pancakes

  • Add them to salads and nourish bowls.

  • Blend them into smoothies.

  • Eat them from a bowl: This is my favorite way to eat them.
