Nutrient Booster: Blueberries
Blueberries not only add delicious flavor and color to this recipe but they also add an abundance on nutritional properties! Blueberries are an excellent source of fiber with 6.2g in a 1 cup serving. Having fiber-rich foods in your diet is important for healthy digestion and can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Blueberries are also extremely high in antioxidants, which help the body fight off free radicals, keeping us healthy.
