Berries are packed with nutrients to help give you a healthy body and a beautiful appearance. Here are some of the rewards you can look forward to by including berries in your diet.
Berries contain vitamins like A, C and E that are needed everyday. Your body should get these vitamins daily to maintain immune system health and rebuild and repair itself.
Berries are packed with antioxidants that protect our cells and fight against diseases and cancers.
Berries, especially raspberries, contain an abundance of fiber to help promote healthy digestion.
The combination of vitamin C and the vast amount of antioxidants found in berries may help prevent sun damage, and provide your skin with a healthy glow.
May help reduce belly fat
Improving bone health
Polyphenols may help women, especially after menopause, maintain bone density, say the researchers from Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.
My Favorite Easy Berry Ideas:
- Buy frozen organic berries!! (Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have the best selection)
- Yogurt parfaits- coconut yogurt with any berry mixture, topped with flaxseed or walnuts.
- Smoothie- mix berries with banana, flaxseed, plant protein, almond milk or soy milk and ice.
