Blueberries, The Feel Good, Look Good Fruit!
Did you know that in July 2003, the United States Department of Agriculture proclaimed that July is National Blueberry Month in the United States of America? I hope you are enjoying National Blueberry month. Now, in its 15th year many enthusiasts look forward to this month to see, smell and get these beautiful antioxidant, fiber filled blueberries in either fresh or frozen form or out of their own garden so that they can enjoy them in so many different dishes and witness the many positive health benefits they bestow on to their system. I personally, love blueberries all year long, but in the month of July, I do enjoy making my very own blueberry lip balm with shea-butter, coconut oil and aloe, which allows my lips to feel so soft and look marvelous with that pinkish-purple hue tone.
This month make your own blueberry dish, please no artificial flavors for it defeats the nutritional purpose of the fruit completely. No matter which way you slice or dice it, you should really incorporate more blueberries into your diet and daily regime this month and/or every month. Your body will thank you for including blueberries into your diet because it will indeed notice a significant difference from the potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory fruit in just a few days, but I say give it a try for a month to truly convince yourself of this important super-fruit.
