blueberries for breakfast

This superfood blueberry breakfast bowl will have you excited to wake up and start the day. Breakfast bowls are these amazing inspired creations jam-packed with nutrient-dense food and bursting with flavor. Simply put, they are a quick and satisfying take on breakfast. But in reality, you can eat them any time of the day. Have you seen the breakfast bowl inspirations all over Pinterest lately?

I am stuck on this simple, light yet satisfying blueberry breakfast bowl combination. I’m a little partial to blueberries thought growing up in New England. It’s perfect for breakfast or as a mid-morning snack. I love to eat it while we home school. Seriously though, this one is so yummy it almost tastes like a blueberry cheesecake but with fewer calories.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY BREAKFAST BOWLS

To make this, you’ll need your favorite yogurt. I like Greek yogurt with honey and your favorite granola. And if you read this and happen to be spending the summer in Maine, just go out to the woods and get fresh blueberries. If not, organic will have to take second place. That’s it!

BLUEBERRIES AND SUPERFOODS

Blueberries are one of those amazing superfoods that you’ll want to incorporate into your diet. Did you know that the darker the berry the more antioxidants it contains? Low bush blueberries or wild growing blueberries have even more antioxidants than high bush blueberries. They help combat free radicals from sun exposure. Free radicals are these unstable molecules that can damage your cells and contribute to aging and diseases, such as cancer.

Blueberries are:

  • high in fiber
  • potassium
  • vitamin C
  • vitamin K
  • and contain significant amounts of zinc and iron which are both great for the skin.

 A cup of Blueberries contains:

  • 4 grams of fiber
  • 24% of the RDI of Vitamin
  • 36% of the RDI of Vitamin K
  • 25% of the RDI of Manganese

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and Phyto flavonoids. This is what gives fruits and vegetables their beautiful colors and why it’s important to eat a colorful diet. Flavonoids are a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma, and stroke. They may play a special role in protecting the brain
