All Things Blueberry (video below)
AlignWell Chiropractic believes food is medicine and fueling our bodies with whole ingredients is the best way to support not only our health and wellness but also our goals, dreams, and ambitions. Fueling our bodies well can influence our physical and mental health, making all the difference in how we live, feel, and think. This is why we are passionate about connecting our community with those who nourish us, our local farmers.
Come shop Wednesday and Saturday at the Holland Farmers Market to pick up the freshest, most nutrient dense fruits and vegetables you can find. This week we interviewed the Bowermans to highlight our produce of the week, blueberries. Check our the video below.
Market vendors are swimming in deliciously plump blueberries and what a gift it is that they grow so well so close to home!
This is luck for us because blueberries are one of the most nutrient dense foods you can eat.
They are high in fiber, vitamin C and K, as well as manganese and antioxidants.
Blueberries are super high in Anthocyanins, an antioxidant belonging to the flavonoid and polyphenol groups. Antioxidants protect our bodies from free radical damage which can cause DNA damage, diseases like cancer, diabetes, & heart disease. Free radicals also contribute to inflammation and aging in general so, if your goal is to fight that eat blueberries!
Needless to say, blueberries pack quite the nutritious punch which can make all the difference in not only aging and inflammation but cognitive and physical function.
Set yourself up for success by shopping at our local farmers market and tossing some delicious blueberries in yours and your kids’ lunch.
We love blueberries as much as anyone but these blueberry bars with a brown sugar crumble on top make for a filling breakfast. Serve warm with a scoop of Greek yogurt for an energizing and quick breakfast.
