Blueberries are native to North America and are known for their antioxidant properties. While they are a great choice for summer, do not hesitate to enjoy them during the winter as well since they are not as cooling as blackberries and raspberries. "Traditionally known to help strengthen the pancreas and stabilize blood sugar levels, blueberries serve to offset the high energy demands and high sugar content of the summer harvest", according to John Douillard, author of The 3 Season Diet. Blueberries tend to offer a somewhat lower content of the vitamins A and C, and less minerals than other berries, yet their sweet, meaty nature make them a popular choice with plenty of nutrients.
