Blueberry your way to better health

Updated on June 5, 2010

 Blue berries have long been prized for their sweet taste and ability to make luscious muffins and pies.  Interesting enough is the fact that they also can help protect against the effects of free radicals and fight against diseases associated with aging.  Blue berries naturally contain antioxidants such as vitamins C and E and are said to be the fruit with the highest antioxidant activity.  The blue berry is said to even fight against inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis.

To include blue berries in to your diet you could try having blue berries with hot oatmeat cereal or even with cold cereal.  Try a blue berry muffin, blue berry pancakes or blue berry pancake syrup.  Blue berries can be found in recipes for fruit salads especially during Flag Day and Independance Day in the United States when the desert must show off the red, white and blue of our flag.  Blue berries also make great pies, jams and jellies and can be combined with other fruits for a tasty fruit crisp.

      Aren't blue berry muffins very high in calories? I love blue berries without the sugar - when fresh they are delicious.

      Never heard about fighting RA - great tip!
