Taking Your Food To Heart

July 8, 2008 at 2:59 am

A recent addition to the Farmer’s Market cornucopia includes fresh blueberries, with blackberries close behind.  The deep rich hues of blue, red and purple found in berries indicates the presence of bioflavonoids which are a type of antioxidant that protect small blood vessels and support healthy cardiovascular function.   Animal-based studies also indicate that blueberries may help slow age-related deficits in the brain and support healthy weight-management by increasing satiety.  Sprinkled in smoothies, yogurt, or eaten straight out the fridge, these summer season delights will nourish your heart while pleasing your palate.  Purchase local and orgainic berries when possible.  A link for U-Pick farms in Maryland is listed under “Links.”
