  • Love berries, but they have become outrageously expensive.
    I buy extra blueberries & strawberries when they are in season, wash them, & freeze on cookie sheets. When frozen, I put them in a freezer bag & use them in smoothies, mix into yogurt or cottage cheese, or put them into other recipes. I slice the straberries before freezing them.
    I am blessed because I have eight blueberry bushes growing in my yard. I also have a beautiful strawberry bed; And blackberries grow in the field beside my house. There are plenty for jellies and jam, to eat fresh and to freeze. So I am very blessed!
    I HAD NO IDEA of all the "berry benefits". Thanks. Blackberries grow wild all around here, so it's a win-win...fresh air & exercise will picking and all the vitamins and yummies when I eat.
    My favorite berries are blueberries and strawberries, but they're even better when frozen with yogurt! Try it, it's an amazing replacement for ice cream in the summer =^.^= Also, cranberry juice can help fight off kidney stones and other kidney problems- cool, huh?
    I love berries, and try to properly clean, and have my family eat immediately. I try to buy locally to receive the benefit of the phytonutrients. This is difficult since the seasons are short. I also have my family drink Jus (a beverage with berries pureed) to receive great health benefits.

    I agree with buying organic berries and those grown locally are best. Better yet, its not had to grow berries in your own yard. I have strawberries, and blueberries roght now and plan to start some raspberry bushes . they freeze well, not to mention the unbelievable flavor of just picked!
  • I don't buy fresh berries shipped more than 100 miles. the quality isn't good or it is cost-prohibitive. In summer, I will buy from the local farmer's market. We pick our own blueberries at a U-pick farm. I am just running out from last summer, and the quality is still good. I buy other berries frozen.

    To the diabetics posting: If you think you can't eat berries, talk to a diabetic educator.

  • why does everything you read or eat have so many calories or have too much sugar? I'm diabetic and I want to eat something with less calories or sugar. I do not eat that many sweets as much as I used to .....I do like all kinds of berries and fruits, so I guess I could eat more of them.
    For health benefits I think it's important to buy organic berries. They're hard to wash, and I've read that Strawberries in particular are loaded with pesticides. I LOVE berries, eat them every day in smoothies made from frozen (organic) berries, and in season I buy them fresh and snack on them. Nice to hear that something that tastes so good is good for you too!!
  • I was always a strawberry eater. This summer I added blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. I am really amazed at the amount of antioxidants that they offer. As a breast cancer survivor, I should have been eating them a long time ago. I was eating 10-12 of them at a time but after reading your article, I am going to increase the amount that I eat.
    I love berries, but as a type 2 diabetic I must avoid fruit to keep my blood glucose under control. Sad, as I do love them, but I love my toes more.
  • I love this article, i love berries and i know they are good for you.
  • oh, and I also like that they give you tips on how to store them properly, I always have that problem, they keep spoiling on me!
