Raspberries are bursting with sweetness, flavor, and tons of vitamins too. I love adding raspberries to oats, yogurt, all desserts, as a sauce for savory dishes, smoothies, and even with a hint of balsamic vinegar for a delicious and unusual treat.
- Raspberries contain a diverse group of important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. This vast group of goodies protects our cells from oxidative stress and help to lower the risk of chronic diseases like cancer, obesity and type-2 diabetes.
- Raspberries contain specific phytonutrients that may help manage blood sugar levels. These compounds may be able to block a certain enzyme that increases the breakdown of starches into sugars. After a heavy meal, these sugars are absorbed into the bloodstream and result in high levels of blood sugar. Consuming raspberries can help to block this enzyme and manage blood sugar levels.
- Raspberries are filled with plenty of necessary vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, K, & E, manganese, fiber, and copper
Try to buy organic raspberries if you can. All berries are usually very pesticide ridden.
When purchasing, look for fully ripe raspberries that are plump with a deep color. Store dry raspberries in a container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
You can also freeze raspberries for up to six months for a great addition to desserts, jams, sauces, and smoothies.
