Blueberries - bloody beautiful!

Blueberries in Australia are just gorgeous at the moment and really really cheap at around $3.98 a punnett. They're great for those with lap bands as they are in perfect bite size pieces, filled with juice and a skin that is easy to eat. A great snacks on their own or in a lovely fruit salad or with some yoghurt.

Blueberries are phytonutrient superstars. These fruits contain significant amounts of anthocyanadins, antioxidant compounds that give blue, purple and red colors to fruits and vegetables. In addition, blueberries also contain ellagic acid, another phytochemical that has been shown to prevent cell damage.

So pick up a punnet today! Your body will thank you :)

Do you have a blueberry farm? hahaha... I've never been into berries really, but I'll think about giving them a go.
