The healthy mono-unsaturated fats in avocados keep the heart in shape by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol by 24 percent and raising HDL (good) cholesterol by 47 percent. This can reduce blood pressure by up to 13 points.
Ill bet youre already pretty excited about that and we havent even talk about the blueberries!
My mom is 75 years old and the picture of health and she always says food is medicine and blueberries are certainly the king of fruits as medicine!
Blueberries are one of the superfoods; foods that have been found to provide health benefits far beyond their nutritional value and taste.
Blueberries have the highest antioxidant capacity of any fresh fruit! They’re also bursting with phytonutrients, vitamins, good fiber, and virtually no fat. As if all that werent enough, blueberries are low sugar, low glycemic, yet sweet in its natural state. Blueberries reign supreme as a food that everyone should eat and enjoy!
