Blue Perfection

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 13 Aug 2014

Blueberries are bursting with flavor and nutrition... Bake them in pies and muffins, swirl them in smoothies, or pop them straight in your mouth for a juicy treat!  Blueberries have a sweet history too!  Because the little blue berry grows in abundance in North America it has become a food staple.  During the civil war they were given to the troops as one of their many food rations.   The most popular muffin in North America is of course blueberry, and all we can say is YUM!! 

To the Native Americans they were known as star berries and colonizers made gray paint by boiling blueberries with milk.  But, blueberries are not just great in muffins, or great for painting, but they are amazing for our bodies too!  The blue fruit is filled with many antioxidants and nutrients they are amazing for your eyesight, have been said to help the damage from heart disease, cancer and the debilitating effects of Alzheimers disease.   Also, a study of rats found that using the abstract of blueberries improved the balance, coordination, and short term memory of the rats.

 Our amazing members have been busy shooting this little super-food.  Check out these images from JPG that pack a big punch of flavor.
