15 Nov Why you should eat raspberries
Raspberries are packed full of nutrients. They are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, low in sugar and also contain a good whack of fibre. In fact, one cup of raspberries has more than twice the amount of fibre as the same amount of blueberries. Further, raspberries are also an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese and vitamin K. There is some evidence to show that including raspberries as part of a healthy diet can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer and heart disease. This is most likely attributed to its high fibre content.
I include a handful of the frozen variety on my brekkie cereal/porridge. But you can add them (fresh or frozen) to yoghurt, custard, ice cream, smoothies, and sweets too. Or just nosh on them directly from the punnet. Not only are they versatile, they’re also very good for you!
And what’s more, they are now in season. That’s berry good news!
