Blueberries

Blueberries may be small, but they pack a big nutritional punch. Just one cup of blueberries can provide you with 25 percent of your daily recommended Vitamin C, which can contribute to healthier gums and a strong immune system. Full of fiber, blueberries can help you maintain good cholesterol levels and a healthy cardiovascular system. And last, but not least, manganese- and antioxidant-rich blueberries contribute to stronger bones, provide us with much-needed energy and can help prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s.

When buying blueberries, look for firm, dry, plump, smooth-skinned berries. Ripe blueberries should be deep purple-black to blue-black and have a silvery surface free of leaves and stems.
