13. Berries aren’t just a tasty treat.
Instead of reading for a fruit snack or something else sugary and unhealthy for you, why not have some berries? Not only are they delicious, but they are quite good for you, too. Berries are an excellent source of vitamin C, and most berries also contain antioxidants. Studies also show that these antioxidants help protect the body against cell damage that could lead to skin cancer and cancers of the bladder, breast, lung, and esophagus. Not only are they good for you, but there are also many to choose from.
Along with having many different types of berries to choose from, you also have various ways to choose from on how to eat them. You can eat them fresh, dried, or even frozen. If new, make sure you rinse or wash them off first before eating them, in any case. You can put berries in yogurt or cereal for some added flavor. Alternatively, try it even in muffins or your oatmeal for a boost in the morning. Even for a quick and healthy snack, make a low-fat strawberry smoothie.
