Blueberry Bliss

February 18, 2015

I seem to be in a Blueberry Bliss lately. It’s great to have a favorite food with so many healthy benefits! I have read that blueberries are super high in antioxidants, a great brain food, great for your eye sight, great for our cardiovascular system, and you can freeze them without losing any of their health benefits!

Some of the fresh blueberries that I have had lately have been super plump and juicy!

One of my favorite things in my freezer right now is my gigantic bag of frozen blueberries!

I have discovered that if I put one cup of frozen blueberries along with 1 packet of sweetener (I’m currently loving the raw stevia) in a bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes, it makes a great topping for my oatmeal, my pancakes or my french toast! No need for any butter or syrup with the sweetness that these berries provide!

Breakfast yesterday was soooo good!

Dinner was odd, but I was so hungry at 5:00 and we don’t usually eat until about 7:00. I found one last turkey burger in the freezer, so I heated it up, then cut it in half, and made a baby quesadilla burger with a little provolone cheese. I added a few carrots, and thought I would eat a small dinner later with Mike.

Still really hungry and loving the crispy tortilla I’d just eaten, I put a little cheese in one more tortilla and made a mini cheese quesadilla, but failed to take a picture of it.

By the time Mike got home, (after 7:30) I wasn’t super hungry, so I made this fruit bowl with some fresh raspberries, blackberries and the other banana that I bought yesterday! While I didn’t eat all of my points for the day, I’m certain that I consumed plenty of calories.
