Fresh seasonal berries are one of the foods I miss the most during the winter time. Berries are rich in flavonoids, anti-oxidants, and anthocyanidins which is good for all the cells in our bodies and may benefit our hearts and help fight inflammation and cognitive decline. Berries are also high in fiber, which can make our digestive tract happy and help manage blood sugar.
