Berries: What | When | Why

BERRIES!


Berries sure do pack a nutrient dense punch and are easy to get into your diet. Our personal favourite way is a delicious smoothie bowl. (Recipe coming soon) or just freezing blueberries and having them as a snack 😋


Berries are loaded with antioxidants which help control those free radicals! (Free radicals are unstable molecules are a by-product of your metabolism). Here are a couple more benefits:


1️⃣They are also known to improve blood sugar levels.

2️⃣Berries are high in dietary fibre (helps you feel fuller longer which reduces hunger and lowers your calorie intake)

3️⃣Packs a nutrition punch which includes vitamins: C, K, manganese, copper and folate

4️⃣Helps to fight against inflammation in the body

5️⃣ Good for your skin
