    Blueberries

    How good are these little things? They're delicious first and foremost, but they're loaded with anti-oxidants and helpful chemicals, plus they're low glycemic.

    What's not to love?

    Your spot on.

    I found that trader joes sells blueberry juice - yes its concentrated but its low in sugar and it mixes really well with vanilla protein powder + soy milk.
    Really great for a post workout drink. Or you could spend 6 bucks and buy a bigass pack and grind them babies up in the blender.

    HaHaha : ) Just got back from the gym and I'm drinking a whey blueberry drink. I bought 7 4lb boxes of blueberries for 5.99ea and put them in the freezer. I like them frozen. They don't clump, get to hard, freezer burn or even need to be put in a bag. I just stack the boxes in there. I like them so much I planted 6 good size plants as well this Spring. I planted 2 early varieties, 2 mid-season, and 2 late-season.

    costco has a huge bag of blueberries for about 7-8 dollars. I use them when I am feeling like a smoothie. My daughter loves when I make her homemade "jamba juice"

    They are perfectly fine to eat if they fit in your diet. I can snack on fresh cherries all day too.

    Only thing to watch for frozen fruits is added sugars. Make sure the label on the back says :
    INGREDIENTS : BLUEBERRIES

    nothing more. Some have corn syrup to help give them a sweeter taste. Added calories is all you are getting.

    I noticed you live in Oregon. Lots of great blueberry farms in the valley. I used to pick blueberries every summer after strawberry season. Nothing like fresh fruit.

    Blueberries are probably my favorite fruit. I get them fresh or frozen and put in shakes.

    I have been adding about 1/4 cup frozen to my morning oatmeal, it makes it a little more tolerable, and goes down quicker than the plain cooked oats. Also cools the oatmeal down a little so I can eat it as soon as it sets. I can't stand cooking oatmeal on the stove anymore, I just use the kettle, pour the hot water in over the oats and blueberries and let it absorb. Leaves a little more texture too.

    That's the way I cook oats too. The blueberry idea sounds awesome - will have to try.

    You want an ice cream/popsicle like treat?

    Freeze whichever fruits you want (berries and bananas work well).
    The next day, blend them up in the food processor!!
