THE SIDE DISH :: Blueberries

Did you know that Native Americans used blueberries as a part of their diet and as a medicine?

Native American's used blueberry juice to treat persistent coughs and other illnesses. We now know that blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and manganese. Studies have also shown that blueberries rank #1 as an antioxidant fruit. Now that is good stuff!
