Why you Need a Berrylicious Diet

I l o v e berries (blueberries being my favorite).

Not only do they provide you with essential antioxidants but are also very low in calories, making them a nutritious and tasty weight-loss hack. You can add them to your smoothies, oatmeal, chia pudding, home-made desserts, eat them with coconut yogurt, or simply drizzle them with raw coconut flour and sweeten them with stevia.

According to WebMd, blueberries contain the following:

  • Antioxidants. These chemicals, which include vitamins A, C and E, protect cells from damage and possibly from disease. 
  • Resveratrol. This is found in grapes and some other berries, as well as in red wine and dark chocolate. It may help lower inflammation, prevent clogged arteries, and offer cancer protection.
  • Flavonoids. These nutrients give berries their brilliant colors and may help protect against cancer, inflammation, and heart disease.

Here is my favorite smoothie recipe with blubs:

Blend one large banana with a cup of blueberries, spinach and coconut water and one tablespoon of chia/flax.

If you want to make a smoothie-bowl just use less liquid and you can eat the thicker consistency with a spoon. You can add toppings like dried mulberries,  cacao nibs, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds and raisins.

The protein powder I use and recommend.
