Blueberries

Blueberries are available year round. They are a nutrient packed fruit that contains nutrients for brain health. Researchers have found that one cup of blueberries improved the learning capacity and motor skills of rats. Blueberries provide about 25% of a day’s worth of vitamin C. There is three grams of fiber in each cup.

At the grocery store check the blueberries for mold and that they do not stick to the container. They are best eaten soon after purchasing. They do not ripen like a banana. Add blueberries to oatmeal, a smoothie, or a salad. They are a great addition at meals or a snack for a healthy brain!
