They are high in Vitamin C and taste delicious in smoothies, in salads, on yogurt, oatmeal, and just eaten by themselves. Blueberries are a late spring to late summer fruit. See if there is a blueberry farm near you and enjoy a day of picking. It's a great mindfulness activity. Here is one of my favorite go to, easy to make breakfast smoothies that is quick and simple from Sondi Bruner's Anti-Inflammatory Diet in 21.
