Spring Produce: Bodacious Blackberries

GIMME ME...some organic blackberries!

I've always loved mixed berries thanks to their low sugar content + utter deliciousness, but when Spring rolls around, I am all about snagging some blackberries for smoothies, toast toppers, soups, salads, + more tasty uses.

SNAPSHOT OF HEALTH: One cup has just 62 calories, but have some of the highest antioxidant content amongst fruits. The dark-colored berry is a definite superstar. They are touted as a natural skin-tightener thanks to their Vitamin C + K levels, Also high in tannins, they are known for anti-inflammatory qualities, which we all need in our lives!

Simply put- give yourself a dose of blackberries while they are in season to boost your overall health + wellness!
