So i am currently preparing a meal plan for a client and we were looking at fruits to aid in weight loss... thought i would share with you....
The Health Benefits of Blueberries
Blueberries are known for their antioxidant powers, but this superfood also offers so much more. They are low in calories too, so you can eat them regularly.
We know these berries are packed with critical antioxidants, but they contain other nutrients that we need as well. They’re also rich in manganese, fibre, vitamin K and vitamin C. Eat a serving of blueberries at least three times per week to really get their health benefits.
- help with repairing damaged tissues
- protect against neuro-degenerative diseases as we age
- help us maintain good blood sugar
This berry also helps with our cardiovascular system. They help to keep our cholesterol levels in balance and help to keep our blood pressure at a safe and healthy number.
Blueberries also help us maintain healthy eyes. This is largely due to their antioxidant properties.
Incorporating Blueberries in Your Diet
You can eat these plain. They often have a tart, but sweet flavor. They can be added to yogurt, cereals and porridge. You can also add them to salads and low-calorie desserts like fat-free frozen yogurt. I buy mine from Nakumatt or chandarana stores- Nairobi. Blessings
