Blueberries - The Healthy Snack

blueberry+1Everyone loves fruit but it can often times be laden with sugars which can slow down weight loss goals. However, when I'm in the mood for a sweet,  healthy snack one of my top choices are blueberries. According to, blueberries have a low GI index of 40, which mean they have a decreased risk of raising blood glucose. In addition, blueberries are high in antioxidants (antioxidants are chemicals that can prevent or slow cell damage). Add blueberries to your protein shake, greek yogurt or morning oat bran for flavor. A quarter cup serving is only 21 calories and 3.5 grams of sugar.

Sometimes I'll even eat them plain, which is really good when the blueberries are chilled. Just be careful not to over do it as the sugar can slowly start to add up!
