Are Berries the Perfect Food?
The health benefits of berries are many, especially when consumed with other good foods.
Berries are great for adding color and intense flavor to the meals you serve. They also provide great nutritional benefits as well. They can be an important source of vitamins and the protective phytochemicals. Fresh, frozen or dried berries have similar nutrition profiles, although some Vitamin C may be lost in processing.
PositiveTip: Include a variety of berries in your diet regularly. Just don’t drown them in sugar!
