Great Health Tip of the Day: Start Your Summer in a “Berry” Delicious Way!

June 20, 2014

BerriesTomorrow, June 21st, is officially the first day of summer! While Utah’s weather doesn’t always cooperate, the produce department at Harmons is decidedly summery. With blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries all in season (AND on sale this week), it’s an excellent time to enjoy treats that are both nutritious and delicious.

Berries are packed with vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, and also contain fewer carbohydrates per cup than many other fruits, making them an excellent choice for people living with diabetes. Oh, and they also taste great! So throw some berries into your morning cereal or oatmeal, put a few on your salad, or grab a handful and eat them plain, and enjoy one of the delicious tastes of summer.
