Support your New Year's healthy living goals with BC Blueberries
Incorporate B.C. blueberries into your workout eating plan with these delicious recipe ideas
For many, the New Year means a renewed focus on a healthy lifestyle including more exercise and eating better. B.C. blueberries can’t help with the exercise part, but frozen blueberries can be easily incorporated into pre- or post-workout snacks.
A pre-workout bite can hold off growling stomachs long enough to get you through a workout while post-workout snacks can keep you fueled until dinner is ready. Enjoy our Blueberry Granola Bars before exercising, and our Blueberry Coconut Chia Pudding with Grapefruit as a satisfying post-workout option.
It is no secret that blueberries are one of the best choices to include in a healthy diet. They are considered to be one of the leading "superfoods" by researchers in Canada and U.S. and all you need is a 125ml (½ cup) serving! That small amount of blueberries is one of the 7-10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by the Canadian Food Guide, and contains 3.6 grams of dietary fibre, virtually no fat, and just 80 calories.
