I've discovered a new blog that I'm loving and am addicted to their updates!  It's called The Chalkboard, and it's in association with Pressed Juicery in California. If you're ever in Cali and close to any of their locations, you should definitely drop by and try one of their juices!  It's amazing.

Blackberries are one of my favourite berries for the summer, and they were discussed as a superfood on The Chalkboard by Katie Horwitch!

Superfood Spotlight: Blackberries

It's almost blackberry season!  Here's how and why to get your fill of those edible gems ...

What You Need To Know

Summer is almost here, which means these dark-hued beauties are beginning to pop up in farmers markets everywhere.  Blackberries, which can be eaten fresh or frozen, can be found everywhere from jams to desserts -- even wine!  Their deep purple skin is not only beautiful: it's a sign that these tiny berries are a nutritional force to be reckoned with.

Why You Should Try It

Blackberries get their brilliant color from powerful anthocyanins, which are responsible for healthy memory function, anti-aging and reducing the risk of certain types of cancer.  They also contain half your daily allotment of vitamin C, which combats heart disease, strengthens the immune system and keeps your skin bright and healthy.  With thirty percent (six grams) of your daily fiber intake, they aid in optimal digestion.  But the greatest benefit of adding blackberries to your diet?  They are rich in phenolic acids -- antioxidant compounds notorious for their powerful carcinogenic effects.

Let's Get Together

Blackberries are a delicious way to power up juices and smoothies -- try this delicious recipe by Whole Family Fare.  They are also a welcome addition to summer pies, cobblers and all-natural jams, or can be enjoyed our favorite way -- straight from hand to mouth!
