Aside from the damage done to Veruca Salt, a blueberry has only good things to give a person; in fact, it seems that everywhere I turn lately I am reading about the wonders of the blueberry.
It can't cure cancer, but I think it would try -- it's that kind of fruit. But while it can't cure cancer, it is supposed to be one of the foods highest in natural antioxidants, so I guees it can be quite helpful in discouraging cancer. Among blueberries' other advantageous qualties are that they are good for your skin (as all antioxidants are), they help prevent urinary tract infections, they can help improve eyesight (even better than carrots), and they can help reduce cholesterol (the bad kind). Those tiny blue orbs do a lot for being so small (and I am always encouraged to see small things doing big tasks).
Keeping the wonders of blueberries in mind, I bought some at the grocery store yesterday and had them with some of the most delicious raspberries I've ever had and some (questionable, but edible) lowfat vanilla yogurt for my lunch. I felt like the healthiest girl in the world -- such a good little eater. So, is it wrong that I want to follow it all up with a bowl-full of double fudge brownie ice cream?
If blueberries are so magnificent, won't they blast away the fat and cholesterol from the ice cream? Are they that powerful?
