    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!!

    Sounds like a good idea. I have frozen Crystal light in Popsicle molds in the past. Cheap and easy, and no sugar or calories. Of course, no nutritional value, either.

    I feel like a fucking pervert for mentioning this, but blueberries are also one of my go-to's for sexual adventures lol. A small bowl of frozen blueberries makes for a great time. They dont get too messy, they arent big enough to make your mouth go too cold as to make it uncomfortable, and they are really easy to roll around with your tongue. Everyone wins!

    Plus they are good in my PW shake. And stuff.

    blueberries are good, but i found that goji berries have more nutrition and anti-oxi.
