Summer Munchin

Enjoying the fruits of the season… very literally! Berries are full of anthocyanins, colorful pigments that are not only beautiful but also potent antioxidants. They help protect your cells from the oxidative damage that can contribute to disease risk, which lowers your risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Any deep red or purple produce tends to be a good source, so take advantage of the fresh summer fruit!

  •  Add berries to yogurt or cottage cheese
  • Mix them into your pancake mix
  • Swap jelly for sliced berries on peanut butter sandwiches
  • Toss them into a salads with a tart cheese or dressing to balance out the sweetness (try goat cheese or feta with a balsamic drizzle!
