Make This Spring Memorable With The Berry That Cares
By The Berry That Cares On May 03, 2018

You’ve heard it before: “Time flies when you’re having fun.” But that doesn’t mean that you have to let the memories fly by too! Studies have shown that a consistent consumption of blueberries can aid in diminishing signs of age-related cognition loss such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In case you’ve forgotten, blueberries are nature’s parcels of anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant that can prevent inflammation (believed to be a trigger of Alzheimer’s) and boost neuronal signaling. Along with crosswords, reading, and even knitting, you can go ahead and add any of the following delectably healthy ideas to your routine of memory boosting activities. This season cherish the moments with family and friends and do something memorable!

Picnic Season

It’s not just what you eat but where you eat that can make the difference. Take advantage of the fresh weather and head outdoors with some delicious treats! No need to make your picnic elaborate: toss a mix of leafy greens, blueberries and some crumbly cheese dressed with a light vinaigrette for a quick salad that’s best paired with crusty bread. Let nature and its exquisite flavors take center stage as you focus on the simple and real ingredients in every bite.

Keep it Classic

Skip a night of binge watching the latest TV series and go back in time. Gather the family and introduce the younger generations (or even yourself) to some of the great films of yore! And we can all agree that movies and snacks go together like butter and popcorn, but we prefer a treat as regal as old Hollywood: dip individual blueberries in melted dark chocolate and allow them to sit at least an hour before the ‘big show’ so the chocolate can harden. Short on time? One of the of the most charming qualities about blueberries is that they are nature’s bite sized snack, enjoyable straight out of the carton.

Freeze for the Future

Life has become a complicated game of rushing from one to-do to the next. Be prepared for anything by planning ahead and getting your family involved! Freeze a few cartons of blueberries (learn how here) to ensure that you and your family will have healthy options readily available throughout the busy season. The berries can be taken directly from the freezer and tossed into morning smoothies, fluffy pancakes, and other yummy dishes that’ll remind you all how special it is to eat a home cooked meal.

There’s nothing more satisfying than grabbing a handful of fresh berries and knowing they come straight off the bush. But a blueberry’s journey from field to table requires more than just a skillful hand. A few factors attribute to our product being as plump and fresh as it is.
