If you are looking for a great summer treat that isn’t too sweet, blueberries might be the best snack around.  These little round purple-blue berries are a great healthy option for breakfast, snacks, dessert and even as part of a meal.   Blueberries provide a high dose of antioxidants and research has shown they can provide benefits in bone health, cholesterol control, and improving cardiovascular health.

With so many health benefits, it is easy to see why blueberries make such a great addition to our daily diet.  It isn’t everyday you find something that is good for you that everyone in the family will love to eat.  July is National Blueberry Month and since they are in season here in Arizona, they should be easy to find at farmers markets and in grocery stores.  To help you fill your plates with plump, juicy blueberries this month, here are some great ways to use them at every meal.
