Who loves blueberries? I know I do! I like to eat them fresh with greek yoghurt or in a smoothie. But, I also love baking with them. Not that I am a doctor or a nutritionist but I read that blueberries have lots of good stuff for you such as : low in fat, packed with vitamin c, full of fiber, good for brain health, etc. If you want more info, just google blueberries and you will be surprised how awesome they are.
