May at Bella Viva Orchards: Time for Organic Blueberry Bliss!
Mmmmm Blueberries! Pretty, plump, make your momma beam Blueberries. What makes ‘em even better is that they’re Certified Organic. Right now, our nearby trusted grower-partners are busy harvesting these flavorful and super-nutritious berries that have been basking in the Central California sun and are just about jumping off the bushes by themselves!
The moment our neighbors deliver this precious cargo to us, we whisk them away to our drying yards where they’re lovingly transformed to a treat that you can enjoy now and throughout the year. Sure, you can find them fresh in your local grocery store throughout the year. We invite you to check those labels, ‘cause there’s a pretty good chance that they’ve been harvested in another country. If you’re good with that, that’s okay, but we are all about going local. Yes, when it comes to real, honest California-grown Blueberries, we think we’ve got it just right. Each bite is packed with pure, natural sweetness that’s completely free of additives or GMOs. We like to think of ‘em as local heroes.
So back to what we were saying about them being super-nutritious… We like ‘em just because they taste great, they’re fun to eat and they’re super portable. They’re just so good. If you’re up for a brief scientific read from the National Library of Medicine, check out this article on some of the nutritional benefits of Blueberries. Even a casual perusal of this article will likely motivate you to make them a part of your regular diet.
It’s easy to enjoy them. You can stick with the basics and eat them right out of the bag. You could add them to your morning oatmeal, toss a generous handful into your next green salad or add some to your favorite trail mix. You could also really step it up and add them to a dinner recipe, scones or cookies. Cookies? Yes! Check out this month’s recipe for totally gluten-free Almond Flour Blueberry Pecan Cookies with Cacao Chips and you’ll get what we’re saying. Really, try them. This is a make over and over again recipe, friends!
