Wild Blueberries

I have loved blueberries since my childhood. My dad’s favorite pie was blueberry pie, and that sweet dessert was my first experience with this little berry. Growing up I also enjoyed blueberry pancakes and blueberry cobbler. It wasn’t until my adult years that I ever tried eating the berries by themselves. It was fun to pick my own berries, at local farms, popping a few that were warmed by the sun into my mouth as I worked.

Imagine my delight when I discovered that the wild blueberry, from Maine in the USA, is considered one of the most powerful foods on the earth. In Life Changing Foods, by Anthony William, he writes that cultivated blueberries, while still a nutritious food, don’t offer even a fraction of the health benefits that their wild cousins do.

Wild blueberries have learned to adapt to climate changes and they have learned how to thrive, like no other food on the planet. They have extremely high levels of antioxidants, bringing healing to any damaged part of the body. Wild blueberries are the most effective food for eradicating heavy metals and other toxins from the body. They are a powerful brain food and amazing at restoring the liver.

Wild blueberries can help prevent any type of cancer and they are so restorative that they are beneficial for any symptom, whether physical, emotional or spiritual. Anthony believes that in the future, the properties of the wild blueberry will be the key that unlocks the secrets of healing diseases.

This health altering berry is easy to incorporate into the diet. It is crucial to purchase wild blueberries, rather than regular berries, and the easiest way to find them is in the frozen foods section at the grocery store. I buy the largest bag available, at Walmart. Wild blueberries are readily found at most grocery and health food stores.

My favorite way to enjoy wild blueberries is by adding them to my morning smoothies or smoothie bowls. Combined with a banana, mangoes, cilantro and a spoonful each of Hawaiian spirulina, Atlantic dulse flakes and barley grass juice extract, these berries create a very effective heavy metal detox smoothie. I drink one of these at least three times a week.

I top pancakes, free from gluten, dairy, eggs and sugar, with thawed wild blueberries and organic maple syrup, for a healthy weekend breakfast. And for an easy and nutritious treat, combine frozen wild blueberries with frozen chunks of bananas and blend in food processor or blender until creamy. Yum!

Add wild blueberries to water for a refreshing, fruity drink, to green salads or eat them plain, frozen or thawed. As one whose first experience with blueberries was in a pie, I love the recipe for raw wild blueberry pie, in the Life Changing Foods book. With its date, coconut and cashews crust and naturally sweet wild blueberries and mango filling, this luscious pie is simple to make and full of health boosting goodness. You can find my blog post with the wild blueberry pie recipe HERE.

This is one food I keep in the freezer at all times. I’m grateful for all that it offers to my health and well being. Thanks, Dad, for introducing me to blueberries!

Wild blueberries are the super food, among super foods. Anthony calls them the world’s most powerful food. They are extremely high in antioxidants, making them effective in preventing and fighting against all diseases, including cancer. Wild blueberries eliminate heavy metals from the body, restore the liver, nourish the brain and they are the most potent prebiotic in existence.

While domesticated blueberries have health benefits too, it’s the wild berries that are most powerful. Buy them frozen at the grocery store, making sure the package has wild blueberries printed on it.

I garnished the pie with additional wild blueberries, covered with plastic wrap and placed in the refrigerator.

After a healthy dinner, a slice of this easy to make pie was my special treat. And what a treat it was! Light, fruity and so satisfying, I enjoyed my piece of pie even more, knowing I was receiving health benefits with each delicious bite.

I will be making this pie for special occasions and as a dessert for company. And sometimes, I’ll create one for me, as a celebration of my healthy lifestyle.
