Blueberry muffins are not “a serving of fruit”…much as it may appear the part! Instead, aim for a minimum of 7 servings of fresh vegetables and fresh fruits combined to color your day. These are powerful, phytonutrients identifiable by their richly painted blues, reds, purples, yellow, oranges and greens that play a significant role in directing our best genetic expression due to the special plant chemicals they boast. In the case of blueberries and other similarly toned fruits and vegetables, they contain anthocyanins, a type of flavonoid that is noted for having one of the highest antioxidant capacities, defending cellular and DNA integrity. Additionally these are memory and cognition protective while having documented inflammation-reducing properties.
