Berry Delight



I LOVE berries! Not only do they taste amazing but they are so good for you!

There are many amazing benefits of berries but to name a few:

Berries help with sun protection – The antioxidants found in berries can protect you from free radicals and premature aging of the skin.

Flavonoid-packed berries, such as blueberries and raspberries may aid in cancer prevention.

Berries are high in fiber ;)


Fat Burner – The red coloring contains anthocyanins, which stimulate the burning of stored fat. The compound nitrate found in strawberries promotes blood flow and oxygen in our body, that’s a plus for weight loss.


Heart Health – Blueberries contain high levels of compounds that may help widen arteries, which counters the plaque buildup that generally causes heart attacks.


Blackberries are high in fiber and helps with digestion and may help lower your cholesterol levels, which fights cardiovascular disease. The vitamin A in blackberries also helps your digestive tract by  maintaining healthy mucous membranes, such as the tissues that line the inside of your mouth. Each cup of raw blackberries provide 308 IU of vitamin A.

A great way to start consuming some this amazingness is to add some to your breakfast.

It is such a good habit to start the day off with fruit.


The Amazingness Behind The Powerful Fruit, Kiwi


Kiwi is one of the most nutrient-rich fruits. It is loaded with potassium and fiber, making it one of the healthiest super-foods.

Kiwis are super rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our bodies from harmful substances and protect us from illnesses and anti-aging. Kiwis are high in fiber which is great for your digestion. Kiwis are high in Vitamin C and contain more VC than oranges! VC is an important vitamin that helps to strengthen your defenses and helps healthy bones, teeth, and blood vessels.

Every women needs to make folic acid a part of their diet. Kiwi provides 10% of the RDA for folic acid, which is important for expectant mothers and works to produce red blood cells. There are very few foods equal to kiwi in folic acid.

Kiwis are loaded with potassium and have more potassium than bananas. Woah! Potassium is an important mineral that controls heart activity and works with sodium to maintain fluid balance in the body.

Kiwifruit contains a relatively high level of serotonin and inositol. Serotonin causes a calming effect in most individuals, thus helping relieve stress while inositol can be beneficial in treating depression.

Depending on your taste buds….It can be hard to eat this sour fruit so I like to cut it up and mix it with some greek yoghurt. Yum!
