July celebrates National Blueberry Month and for good reason. Sweet and slightly tart, blueberries are bursting with flavor, easy to grab and go, and have numerous health benefits.

Often touted as “superfoods,” blueberries have a high concentration of anthocyanins, which give them their deep blue color and have been linked with lower incidence of heart disease. At only 80 calories per cup, one serving of blueberries supplies 16% of the daily value for vitamin C — an important vitamin for immune health and growth and repair of tissues. They are also high in manganese, a mineral that helps our bodies convert food into energy. A good source of fiber, blueberries may also help promote heart and gut health and help keep blood sugars stable.
