Blueberry Muffins with Orange

blueberry muffins

Can you picture a blueberry wearing a cape and an eye-mask bandanna?  A blueberry as a superhero?
You may not believe it, but these little berries come loaded with lots of goodness.

They are chock-a-block full of antioxidants, the substance found in food that helps neutralize the cellular damage caused by free radicals.  Now, if that doesn't sound virtuous what does? 

There are many other reasons why blueberries are considered heroic. They are high in vitamin C, contain fibre, help reduce urinary tract infections, and may help control cholesterol problems.  

Plus, (and this is the one I like the best) they may help slow down age-related mental loss.  Yes! Bring on the blueberries!

Now is the time to join the blueberry cape crusader. It is time to start eating, cooking and enjoying blueberries.
