I shared this awesome recipe on Facebook last week and everyone was loving it. It doesn’t have a whole lot of weird ingredients- and if you’ve been playing by my UnDiet rules the last few years, you likely have all of these goods. I made this one while I was holidaying at the resort better known as my parents house (read: central air on a 40 degree day and a TV to watch some Olympics).
These were made from the goods that my mom keeps as staples in their house. Ever since I did my post about my application for TEDxToronto– all about culinary alchemy, I can’t seem to get the goodness of blueberries and chocolate out of my head.
Blueberry season is full on right now and you best be getting your fill of this antioxidant powerhouse.
Here’s an interesting factoid for you about why berries are so super high in anti-oxidants: They have thin skins. Fruits with thin skins typically have a higher antioxidant concentration because they need an abundance of those good guys to protect them from the elements. Cool, right? Because the more we eat of them- the more protected from the elements we will be.
Eat your blues!
Here are my favourite ways to Eat More Blueberries:
- By the gluttonous handful. Obviously.
- Blueberry Muffins
- Blueberry Peach Salsa
- Blueberry Cashew Cheesecake
- Raw Oreos
