Blueberries are our pick of the week. 

For quite a long time, healthcare professionals and scientists didn’t give the little blueberry its due, since it had relatively low vitamin C content when compared with other fruit. Then it was discovered that the blueberry was a nutrition powerhouse, a superfood loaded with phytonutrients and a fruit that had benefits unlike any other. Packed full of antioxidants, potassium and folate blueberries are also low in fat making them the perfect snack. 

How to pick:

Look for firm, plump and richly coloured blueberries. Avoid blueberries that show signs of wrinkles, mould or leakage.

How to store:

Keep blueberries dry and covered in the refrigerator. Do not wash until you are ready to eat them.

How to prepare:

Super tasty on their own as a mid morning or afternoon snack, bluberries are great when added to your morning cereal or yoghurt. Add them to your smoothie or enjoy them in your favourite dessert.
