Choose “wild” blueberries
Choose ‘wild’ blueberries, instead of cultivated blueberries. ‘Wild’ blueberries are smaller, red inside, and richer in some antioxidants. They are much healthier than cultivated blueberries.
Wild blueberries are found in the beginning of August to the end of September. Every year, I buy 7 kilograms of wild blueberries on the beginning of September, than I put them on the freezer. I leave them for 1 hour than I get them out and shake the bag, to don’t let them freeze and stick together, but every berry should separates from each other. Than, again in the freezer. After 3 hours, again I get them outside the freezer and shake the bag till I see that every berry is separated from each other. Than put in the freezer again. That’s it!
Every 3 days, I take 2 cups of berries from the freezer and make smoothies, or use them in other recipes, that you can find in this blog. So, you can eat “wild” and much healthier blueberries during the whole year, till the next September.
Blueberries are low in calories and high in fiber and vitamins C and K. They also contain many antioxidants, including anthocyanins, the plant pigments that give them their deep purplish-blue color, many other healthy traits, and other compounds that help protect cells from free radical damage and have anti-inflammatory properties.
I enjoy eating blueberries every week. I eat it in different recipes. You can find them in this blog. Enjoy your eating.
