July is the national blueberry month, a great reason to focus on why they deserve that honor.

Blueberries are a nutrient-dense food, low in calories, but packed with vitamins and minerals. They are one of the best-known sources of antioxidants, and also contain phytonutrients. The antioxidants help to destroy or rid our bodies of harmful free radicals while the phytonutrients prevent free radicals and stimulate the enzymes in our bodies. This means that blueberries may lower the risk of cancer, reduce the signs of aging, help to control blood pressure and diabetes.

In addition to the long list of health benefits of blueberries, they are delicious, and available all year through your grocer’s freezer section.
