Health Benefits of Blueberries

These blue beauties have a high concentration of nutrients and antioxidants. They are high in fiber, low in calories, and high in vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin K! Plus, blueberries can improve heart and brain health, lower your risk of cancer, and improve insulin sensitivity which lowers your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. 

Blueberries are an excellent snack on their own, and they can also be used in many different recipes. And since we are chatting about how to make breakfast time easier for parents and kids during those busy school mornings, I have some on the go breakfast ideas loaded with those beautifully delicious little blue superfood berries that you are going to love! 

Registered Dietitian Qula Madkin says that blueberries are a great addition to your daily routine during back to school or any time of the year. Blueberries are small but mighty and loaded with nutrients that offer many benefits.  Blueberries support brain health, may reduce blood pressure, aid muscle recovery after exercise, and more.

You may have seen on LinkedIn that in April, our Social Media Manager, Rebecca, had the pleasure of spending a morning at Consalo Family Farms for the momentous 40th anniversary celebration of Jersey Fresh!

This incredible event showcased the dedication of New Jersey farmers who harvest the delicious and bountiful produce that makes the Garden State thrive.

While at the Jersey Fresh Kick Off, Rebecca had the opportunity to talk with Chelsea Consalo who was honored to be hosting the event. Her family’s passion for the industry and helping the community was contagious.

Our day at the farm gave us firsthand insight into where our food comes from, underscoring the importance of shopping from local farms. It’s not just about enjoying fresh, tasty produce—it’s about making a positive impact on our communities and environment, too.
