Tiny Berry Packs a Powerful Punch
If you’ve not yet discovered Wyman’s Wild Blueberries, now is your time. These tiny little berries are one of the healthiest (perhaps even #1) and most delicious foods on the planet.
While cultivated blueberries that we find locally in stores or pick here in the Midwest are good, wild blueberries have 2X the antioxidants, 33% more anthocyanins (the deep pigment) and 72% more fiber. What this means for us is even greater health benefits, such as:
- Improved brain and heart health
- Healthy blood sugar levels due to low glycemic index
- Promotes gut health
- Overall wellness
These berries have naturally grown in abundance in Maine and Eastern Canada for thousands of years.
They can only be harvested one time a year – in August & September. Therefore, most of the fruit is frozen, dried, juiced or powdered to ensure year-round availability.
Wyman’s freezes the berries within 24 hours of harvesting to maintain peak freshness and nutrition. I’ve seen them at Costco and other local groceries near the other frozen fruits.
I also noticed that you could order them directly from the Wyman website.
They come washed and ready to eat. I love adding them to my smoothies.
And our cells love the benefits of that beautiful purple color!
Enjoy them in baked goods, pancakes, pour milk over frozen berries or make sorbet (I’m going to do this soon).
I also saw a suggestion to put them on top of a baked sweet potato. Hmmm. Guess we shouldn’t knock it until we’ve tried it.
Apparently, the tartness of the berries compliments the sweetness of the potato.
I’ll let you know if I try it. I doubt I’ll get Mr. Non-Compliant on board. He’d be all in for a wild blueberry donut—but only if it’s AMAZING.
Be a Lifelong Learner
I’ve recently had the privilege of speaking to some local groups. There is an abundance of health topics that make for interesting, interactive seminars.
While preparing for my seminars and during the presentations, I always learn something new.
No two seminars are ever the same because the audience and questions are different.
Everyone benefits and we have fun.
If you know of a group or business looking for a speaker, please keep me in mind.
Curious about a topic or hobby? Have the desire to learn a new language or how to play an instrument? Ever dream of taking singing lessons or a yoga class?
My challenge for you is to listen to an audio or read a book on the topic, take the lessons, sign up for a class.
It’s never too late to learn something new.
Be a lifelong learner.
There is one downside. The more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know.
Much love to you,
