Blueberries

Hey all!

And hello from a gorgeous sunset in Michigan.

ahhh

I am a fan of sitting outside with the fam and all the gorgeous surroundings! Vacation is the bombdotcom.

Blueberries

So, once upon a time I declared my hatred for blueberries. I have NO idea where that came from, but I pretty much decided I hated those berries and thus purged them from my diet.

Weird, I know.

I LOVE blueberries, you guys. Ever since eating them at my in-laws house this past May, I thought to myself, “what WAS I thinking?!” I love these little balls of blue.

field of....

So nutritious too. Did you know that blueberries are chock full of antioxidants, tummy-filling fiber, phytochemicals, and tons of vitamins (A, C, E, B6)? They are pretty much cancer-fighting, heart disease-preventing, deliciousness!

And yesterday we picked them off of the tree!

creepy hand...PLUCK!

We went blueberry picking as a family and had a total blast.

I hate handfuls while picking, and then ate some more at dinner (a top a salad, of course!). And then some more at dessert. SO good. I have definitely been missing out these past few years, haven’t I?!

Well, no more. I am determined to make up for all those years in the next few days. I mean there are 12 POUNDS of blueberries sitting in the fridge right now.

mmm

Let’s take bets and see if I can polish them all off πŸ˜‰

Kidding. I would make myself sick, but rest assured I am eating my fair share of those sweet, tart berries (especially since they are high water-dense foods)!

Well, I am off to play at the beach—toodles!

Do YOU love blueberries? Have YOU ever gone berry picking? Was there a food YOU thought YOU hated but really love now?

  1. I absolutely LOVE blueberries! There was also a time when I declared my hatred for them, but no more!!! I went picking for the first time back in June and I loved the experience. However, next time, I won’t wear flip flops and I will pick a ton more!!! I went through my gallon far too quickly…I think I need like 7 gallons :)

  2. OH. MY. GOSH!! Back in my “fat days” I absolutely hated blueberries too! I thought they were useless and flavourless….The only time I would eat them is if they were sitting on top of heaping piles of cool whip….YUCK!!

    I love them now!! It’s beyond love really…More passion…Lust maybe?? πŸ˜‰

    Happy vacay!

  3. :: sniff :: I miss Michigan. :(
