Blueberries, They Rock!

Despite their tiny size, blueberries are nutritional heavyweights. Dr. Fuhrman considers them one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Actually, he calls blueberries one of nature’s best foods:
Native to North America, blueberries have been part of the human diet for more than 13,000 years, long before being formally recognized for their healthy and anti-cancer effects Blueberries are among the best foods you can eat, and I recommend eating them everyday. I have created easy healthy recipes, diet recipes, smoothie recipes – using blueberries, soy milk, ground flax seed, and other natural foods – that give my patients a variety of ways to enjoy this wonderful fruit.
So how about those healthy recipes? Well, there are a lot of them here on DiseaseProof. Check it out:
And Dr. Fuhrman isn't the only one extolling the benefits of blueberries. Get a load of this video. The blueberry farmers must be very happy. Enjoy:

Now, in Disease-Proof Your Child Dr. Fuhrman makes it very clear, blueberries and other dark berries are packed with health-promoting nutrients. He explains:
Blueberries/blackberries are packed with tannins, anthocyanidins, flavonoids, polyphenols, and proanthcyanidins that have been linked to prevention and reversal of age-related mental decline. They also have powerful anti-cancer effects. Use frozen organic berries in the winter when fresh ones are not available.

I love blueberries! Western Michigan is blueberry country, and when these little azure gems were in season, I used to scarf them down by the handfuls. I even worked at a blueberry farm one summer to make a few dollars.

Anyway, last summer I went to the National Blueberry Festival for the first time in South Haven, MI. It was a blast. Check it out: http://www.blueberryfestival.com/
