TIP #1 Don't have time or have too many extra berries to freeze. Just puree them in your blender or food processor and pour into ice cube trays. When frozen, pop them out and put in ziplock bags for later use in smoothies, or recipes..Yum.

 

TIP #2 Place unwashed berries in these produce bags and refrigerate, to get more fresh days from your berries. When ready to eat, then wash and use in your recipes. Click on Logo, to go to her website.

Strawberries are famous in the phytonutrient world because they contain anthocyanins that not only provide its flush red color, but also serve as potent antioxidants that have repeatedly been shown to help protect cell structures in the body and to prevent oxygen damage in all of the body’s organ systems. Strawberries’ unique properties makes them a heart-protective fruit, an anti-cancer fruit, and an anti-inflammatory fruit, all rolled into one. Plus, they are an excellent source of Vitamin C, manganese, dietary fiber and iodine.

Raspberries offer more nutritional value than most foods: high in vitamin C, iron, folate, ellagic acid (anti-carcinogenic compound); they’ve shown to lower high blood cholesterol and slow release of carbs into the stream of diabetics; they have no fat, they’re high fiber and only 64 calories/cup and they’re pretty.  Raspberries are like the Angelina Jolie of real food.

What’s more, they are ready to eat in an instant; no peeling, coring, stemming or chopping – just wash and eat.
