BLUEBERRIES ARE ONE OF NATURES SUPERFOODS
A food is considered a “superfood” when it’s been found to provide health benefits far beyond their nutritional value and taste.
The antioxidants in blueberries have been linked to:
- Helping prevent deadly diseases such as cancer and heart disease
- Reducing oxidative stress
- Improving the look of skin and hair
Full of vitamin C, E, K and manganese, these power-packed berries are often said to be a fountain of youth, slowing down age-related problems such as the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, diminishing eyesight and development of wrinkles while improving coordination and balance!
You just can’t ask for more from such a naturally sweet, low sugar, low glycemic, burst of yumminess!
To experience the full benefits of blueberries, nutritionists recommend eating one to two cups of a day.
This Blueberry Avocado Smoothie is a perfect way to get your first daily cup of blueberries into your belly! And it’s so delicious too! I promise!
Give it a try — I’m sure you’ll love it and I’ll be anxiously awaiting your comments!
