Why Blueberries are So Good For You!

Blueberries are a staple in my house whether it is fresh plump summer berries, or frozen in the winter, these gorgeous little gems are a must.  Why do I prefer frozen blueberries in the winter? Well, it’s all about nutrient density. 

Blueberries are in season March-May which means the fresh berries you buy in the stores during these months are the most nutrient dense. But, I love blueberries all year long, so I buy frozen in the off season months because these berries were picked at the peak of the blueberry season and frozen, guaranteeing a nutritious berry all year long! The beauty of this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen depending on the season!

    whole30 requires no sugar, even coconut sugar, so this recipe may be paleo but is definitely not whole30 compliant and shouldn’t be advertised as so unless you include information about how to make the recipe compliant.
