Berry Picking!

It’s berry season! Today Chris and I went blueberry and blackberry picking. Berries are great for snacking, baking, topping breakfasts or desserts, in smoothies, and on salads. They are packed with vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. They are a true superfood and great for weight management, lowering blood pressure, preventing cancer, and improving heart health. Berries are also a low-glycemic index food, so for those of you concerned about sugar, you need not worry!

Apple picking is a popular pick-your-own go-to and just around the corner, but berry picking is just as fun! And you get to snack as you pick. So give it a try before the season is over. You may even be inspired to throw some of your fresh berries into muffins or pancakes! Picking fresh fruit is fun and can inspire you to explore some fun things with food!
