It’s Friday, wanna feel more energized and ready to take on the weekend?
Add more colors to your snacks today! If you’re looking for a snack to push you through the rest of the workday so you can make it to the weekend with ease; grab a handful of berries for that little energy nudge. Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cranberries, blackberries… any of them will do the trick. Colorful berries such as these are especially good choices because their color comes from anthocyanins, very powerful antioxidants that prevent cell damage, keeping the body in better condition so it can have more energy.
Berries are also rich in vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which are phytochemicals that are found in fruits and vegetables that can also work as antioxidants and prevent injury to cells. Dark berries such as blueberries are especially high in bioflavonoids. For the best immune system boosting effect, eat a bowl of mixed berries instead of choosing just one type.
How do you like to eat your berries? Which are your favorites?
