This week we are focusing on the color blue. What fruit comes to mind when you think of blue? Maybe...blueberries!

-Blueberries have the highest anti-oxidant count of all fresh fruits.
-Blueberries boost the immune system and prevent infection.
-Blueberries neutralize free radicals which can prevent disease and aging in the body.
-Blueberries have been proven to preserve vision.
-Blueberries are useful in dissolving "bad" cholesterol, which makes them an ideal dietary supplement to cure many forms of heart disease.
