Berries for Health
The Perfect Pick
Berries deliver Vitamin C, fiber, and a wonderful taste of summer. Berries contribute phytochemicals to the diet. Phytochemicals may guard the body from heart disease and cancer. When selecting berries, look for firm, plump ones without bruises. Wash berries just before eating to extend the shelf life. Store unwashed berries in the refrigerator for three to six days. Berries are a perfect snack food. They are generally low in carbohydrate and calories and high in water. Berries can be added to smoothies, cereal, or yogurt. They can be tossed in a salad or used as a dessert.

Blueberry-May provide heart health and cancer-fighting benefits
