Little Jewels known as Blueberries!

These next seven days will be filled with little recipes bursting with lots of flavor, recipe and restaurant reviews, super simple and pretty cocktails and they all have one thing in common, BLUEBERRIES!

I LOVE blueberries! I love the color, the snap when biting into one, the texture, the sweetness, and I almost want to say they clean the palette too! I could eat blueberries day after day and in so many ways. I eat so many, I’m surprised my mouths isn’t stained. ūüėõ

That brings me to this book I read. Lets take a moment and adventure to the land of More Blueberry! by Susan Musgrave. This childrens book is adorable, simply put. Its about two siblings who eat so many blueberries they end up turning their face and hands blue. It’s really cute.61-UNJsUKML._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

The fiber in blueberries helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.¬†Blueberries also contain folate, which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair, thus preventing the formation of cancer cells from mutations in the DNA. Blueberries can even¬†reduce the risk of cognitive decline as well as¬†Parkinson’s disease. Crazy right?!¬†af4c1b986881bad86bcb0c5d45d0721f
