Berries Are In Season - Make These Recipes!



Berries are currently in season. And lucky for us, berries are some of the most nutrient-dense fruits packed with numerous health benefits and deliciousness. If you've been told to load up on antioxidants, berries can help with that. I try to eat several servings of berries each week. One study revealed that eating berries can reduce a woman's heart attack risk by up to 34% thanks to specific dietary flavonoids like anthocyanins (source). Berries have also been shown to reduce the risk of cognitive decline and help combat some common nutritional deficiencies. They're also known to be mood-boosting and full of fiber. When buying berries, opt for organic options as often as possible. Conventionally grown berries usually test high for pesticides and other agricultural chemicals.


There are many ways to enjoy berries. I personally like to eat handfuls of raw berries at peak season. When they are not in season, I purchase bags of frozen berries. Sometimes I eat them frozen straight from the bag. Other times, I thaw a handful out overnight in the fridge and then add them to plain Greek yogurt at breakfast the next morning. Berries can be fun to cook and bake with. I've rounded up a few berry recipes for you to try out in your own kitchen. Check them out below.
