Yes, indeed. And aren't we lucky that something so luscious is nutritious, too?
Fresh berries such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are sweet sources of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants that help protect body cells from damage. Plus, fresh berries pack all that good nutrition into relatively few calories—only about 50 to 85 calories per cup, depending on the variety.
So keep on enjoying those berries. Below are some "berry good" ideas for meals and snacks:
Bake into whole-grain muffins and quick breads.
Savor with a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Use as a topper for light ice cream or angel food cake.
Pop them in your mouth plain.
