Raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, and blueberries… we can’t get enough! Not only are berries delicious and sweet, but they’re also chock full of amazing nutrients. For instance, blueberries are consistently at the top of the list of foods with high antioxidant counts, with all other berries not far behind.
Berries are low in calories, and a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, and fibre. Some are even a great digestive aid, like strawberries; others have fantastic anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, like blueberries. The facts are there: berries are an essential addition to your healthy meal plan.
We love adding fresh berries to brighten and sweeten up our dishes, like our Chicken Salad or Oat Bake. Frozen diet meals can’t have fresh fruit, whereas healthy, prepared meals are loaded with super-fresh ingredients like berries! Adding fresh berries into your meal prep is super easy! A lot of people purchase fresh berries from farmers’ markets and grocery stores, wash them, and keep them on hand for quick and easy snacks.
