BlueBerries

Good evening fitness friends. How was your weekend? I hope it was spent doing the thing you love to do with those you love. Now as for me, I was keeping myself  busy cleaning my apartment, but I did have time to get in two good workouts, but after I was done and back home preparing my green protein smoothie. I notice I was missing one crucial ingredient. I’m sure by reading the post title you already know which one.

Blueberries!! This powerful antioxidant was highly sorted after by the Native Americans, who believed Blueberries had magical powers sent down from the gods and renamed Starberries. The magic berries was use during times of famine to feed the children. And Blueberry juice became an important drink for civil war soldiers to protect them from scurvy.

Blueberries or Wildberries are rich in phytochemicals, like anthocyanins. Which creates the pigment that makes blue berries blue, and ellagic acid a natural compound that may inhibit tumor growth.
