berryPower_featBlueberries are power-packed with phytochemicals, studied for their possible anti-cancer, anti-neurodegenerative, and anti-inflammatory qualities. These little berries contain 14% of the recommended daily value of fiber and almost 25% of the daily value of Vitamin C for a one cup serving. They have the most antioxidants of any fruit. They can be a good health boost for your kids at school and a great pick-me-up alternative to coffee for your workday.

Here is our favorite antioxidant-charged blueberry smoothie:
