Blueberries are packed with nutritional power, they contain potent antioxidants - a half cup of blueberries provides the antioxidant power of five servings of peas, carrots, apples, squash or broccoli. They are also a good source of fiber, are a healthy low glycemic-index carbohydrate, and a good source of vitamin C.
Quick Tip: If fresh organic blueberries are cost prohibitive, substitute with frozen or dried blueberries - all three forms provide health-protective benefits. Keep in mind that dried blueberries are a concentrated source of sugar, so enjoy them in moderation.
