Summer is right around the corner! Can you feel it coming? When I think of juicy, early summer fruit I dream of berries and remember picking strawberries and blueberries at my sister’s Michigan farm. Especially the blueberries, which I’d end up eating more than what I put in my berry basket. Today I’m sharing a round-up of several berry recipes … a special thank you to my fellow bloggers for letting me share their tasty treats with you!
Did you know the very dark blue color of blackberries ensures they have the highest level of antioxidants of all fruit? Antioxidants help reduce risk of cancer, but keep in mind it’s best to eat the berries in their natural state. Other benefits of eating blackberries is tightening of tissue (which can keep skin looking youthful), prolonged eating of blackberries helps keep your brain alert, and their high tannin content reduces intestinal inflammation.

Also known for their antioxidant qualities, strawberries are also packed with Vitamin C and are known as the “Queen of Fruits” in Asia. Strawberries boost heart health by fighting bad cholesterol and lowering blood pressure due to their potassium levels. Strawberries are the perfect summertime snack as they’re readily available in grocery stores and farm markets. Eat them in their natural state for the best health benefits.
