April 28 – National Blueberry Pie Day

 
April 28 – Happy National Blueberry Pie Day!
 
 
Blueberries are the second most beloved fruit, right behind strawberries.
 
Blueberries are one of the few fruits native to North America. In 1916, Elizabeth Coleman White, the daughter of a New Jersey farmer, developed the first commercial variety of blueberry based on the wild varieties growing in the region. Today, Driscoll’s blueberries are grown year-round by farmers in the U.S. [1]
 
When compared to other fresh fruits and vegetables, blueberries rank number one in antioxidants. Blueberries are low in sodium, high fiber and potassium, and only 40 calories per ½ cup serving.
 
There is nothing bad about blueberries. The chemicals in blueberries may inhibit cancer cell development. The fruit is reported to have a beneficial effect on a number of other conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, urinary tract infections, and blood pressure. The leaves help block replication of the hepatitis C virus. And a recent study found that wild blueberry juice enhanced memory and learning in older adults, while reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression. They also help reduce bad cholestrol that leads to cardiovascular disease and stroke.
 
Feel good about celebrating this day. Blueberries are good for you.
 
Remember fresh never frozen blueberries, enjoy.
 
 
Recipe for Blueberry Pancakes, enjoy.
