All Around the Blueberry Bush (Eating to Get Smart)


Posted by Patricia S.

Eat blueberries and Einstein will have nothing on you. According to a study at the Human Nutrition Center on Aging at Tufts University, blueberries offer the highest concentration of antioxidents of any fruit. One cup equals 5 servings of carrots, peas, apples, broccoli or squash. Okay, I was willing to give it a try. Hopped over to my local supermarket, headed to the fruits and veges and put a small, but mighty, carton of blueberries in my basket. $3.99, not bad for a little extra brain power. Day one, I sprinkled 2 tablespoons on my wheat flakes. Followed up the next three days with the same regime. As a full-time writer, I was interested to see if blueberries would help bring up those elusive words just a little bit faster. And they did. Much to my surprise, within a week I noticed a marked improvement in my ability to recall appropriate words while writing. Roget and I are still friends, but I keep baskets of those little blue guys in my fridge at all times. Added bonus: Blueberries are low in calories, only 80 per cup.
