How to eat

Blueberries are one of nature’s delectable delights.  Their natural range is found in North America where they can cultivated in the wild from April to May. However, you may find better luck at your local supermarket! Since blueberries are packed with Vitamin C and heat breaks down this essential nutrient, it’s best to eat them raw instead of cooked or baked. If you’re looking for a cleanse you’re in luck because blueberries are in the same family as the cranberry. Throw them in your cereal, salad, or eat em straight out of the container. Remember to wash them first!
