The Power Berry

I've become quite obsessed with a berry this summer, and tis not the one I have my fingers cinched around ninety percent of the day. I had no idea  how powerful yet magical Blueberries are. Not only loaded with antioxidants,  this fruit has been found to battle belly fat, hence magical (FitSugar).

"This little berry tops almost every list of superfoods. Not only do blueberries battle belly fat, they are an antioxidant powerhouse. High in both vitamins C and A, blueberries contain flavonoids that help prevent ovarian cancer and tannins to fight urinary tract infections. This berry aids digestion and is said to help relieve both diarrhea and constipation.Aside from topping yogurt and oatmeal with the berry, I like to bake blueberry almond coffee cake for summertime brunches. You can even add blueberries to your burgers to fight the carcinogens the accompany grilling meat."-FitSugar
