9 Most Delicious Ways to Eat More Berries

Jul 18, 2014

Berries are among the healthiest fruits you can eat daily to improve your health. They are bright, flavorful and incredibly sweet superfruits, which are high in Vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber, and low in sugar. While it’s great to snack on berries plain or add them to your smoothies, there are a few more unique and delicious way to eat more berries on a daily basis.

1 Grilled berries

Have you ever tried grilled berries? While you can grill blueberries and blackberries, I suggest you to grill strawberries since they are larger and easier to use than smaller berries. Place some strawberries on the skewers, grill for about 2-3 minutes and enjoy this delicious snack with dark chocolate or frozen yogurt.

2 Omelet with berries

Yes, you read that right. You can add your favorite berries to your breakfast omelet. Just place some sliced berries on top of the omelet when you are finished, and enjoy a healthy breakfast. You can also add some berries on top of scrambled eggs. Give it a try, you will like it, I promise!
