Blueberries are rich in vitamins B, C, K, betacarotene, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc and fiber.

Dr. James Joseph found in several studies that blueberry supplementation improves memory and that they have antiaging properties.

    We just finished our blreebruy harvest here I don’t even know how many lbs. we picked there were so many. It is a tradition to go to our nearby Upick blreebruy farm every July. We freeze most of ours, and eat them fresh, and make muffins, and the raw blreebruy pie recipe I have on my blog is so good, you will never want traditional pie again. I am also going to try a zucchini blreebruy bread tomorrow. With the ones we freeze we use all year in the breakfast smoothies I make often. We also put them on our oatmeal. Blueberries are so delicious and healthy, one of my all time most favorite fruit!!! Enjoy!
