burgers on grill
Go off the beaten path with tonight’s protein selection by adding some antioxidant rich blueberries to the meat mix.

Blueberries, you say? Yes, we do.

But blueberries are for breakfast aren’t they? Yes, mostly.

So you want us to put these into our burgers?! You betcha. We’ll go out on a limb and answer your next question by telling you that blueberries make a flavorful, health-packed addition to America’s favorite guilt food.

Blueberries are packed with Vitamin C, antioxidants, and are full of dietary fiber. This is an instant upgrade to your current burger recipe. But we’ll go a few steps further. Research suggests that fiber helps keep the body regular, the heart healthy, and cholesterol in check. With just a handful of blueberries, you can meet your daily fiber requirement while also fighting off free radicals with their potent antioxidant properties.

This recipe can not only keep you on track with your body comp goals but it can also convince your friends that you’re a sophisticated foodie with healthier leanings.
