Friday Foodie Fix is here already and looking for your recipes with the Secret Ingredient, Blueberries. Blueberries are becoming known as a super food. They contain cholesterol-lowering compounds, vitamin C, potassium, folate, dietary fiber and is an antioxidant powerhouse. Check out the Blueberry council report stating they have anti-aging effect. I could use that these days. They have been shown to protect against macular degeneration, ovarian cancer, colon cancer and promote gastrointestinal health amoung other things. They are also naturally gluten free and dairy free. Check out World’s Healthiest Foods for more information.
Blueberries are one of the few foods that really needs very little preparation to eat. Just rinse immediately before eating or using, drain on a paper towel, then go to town. Use them in muffins, in and on waffles, in smoothies, in ice creams, and even in salads. Blueberries are native to North America and are in season in the Spring and Summer.
Here are a couple of my Blueberry recipes. I’d love for you to share yours. To read up on the rules visit our Friday Foodie Fix page.
