Although blueberry is not as good for you as superfruits, it is very healthy and it is much easier to find than most of the superfruits in most countries. Even when it is not blueberry season, you can usually still get blueberry in your grocery stores. They taste much better in season though usually. A lot of people eat blueberry because it is tasty but many eat it for its health benefits.
Groundbreaking studies show that blueberries contain disease-fighting compounds not found in any other food. The high amounts of antioxidants found in them are believed to have powerful anti-memory-loss and cancer-preventing properties. And, despite their natural sweetness, blueberries are remarkably low in the carbohydrates and sugar calories overabundant in other fruit.
Very Blueberry book goes beyond the blueberry muffin (though it does include a sub-lime recipe for it!) and features this essential fruit in innovative new recipes like Goat Cheese Tart with Caramelized Onions and Blueberries;
- Arugula, Prosciutto, and Blueberry Salad with Honey-Citrus Vinaigrette;
- Pork Tenderloin with Peach-Blueberry Chutney; and
- Blueberry Salsa.
With this charming, little cookbook, incorporating the recommended half a cup of blueberries into your daily diet will always be a sweet delight.
