10 Ways To Eat Berries This Summer

Are You Trapped In A Cycle Of Guilt And Shame?  STOP!  Use
"Real People Don't Diet" To Start Eating Like A Real Person
While Losing Weight!

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and
expecting different results!

So if dieting hasn't worked for you, and your weight is all you think
about, it's time to do something different.  Right?
Try this:  no more trips to the scale, no counting or calculating or
yucky diet foods, meals and foods you enjoy without guilt, and a
slimmer, healthier you.

Sound good?  "Real People Don't Diet" will show you how to use a
simple math formula to trick your brain and create new, permanent,
healthier and slimmer eating habits.  It's a simple strategy developed
by a real-life couple that dropped over 60 pounds combined--and
kept it off ever since.
And all you have to do is eat "real" foods you enjoy!

My all-time favorite fruit is berries, and my all-time favorite veggie
is sweet corn on the cob, so let's just say summer is my favorite
time of year when it comes to eating fresh!
Now is the time to get your strawberries, blueberries, raspberries,
blackberries...  If you can, get out to a pick-your-own farm and pick
them right off the plants.  (We're going next week.)
Berries are known for their health benefits, including antioxidants.
Blueberries are known to improve brain function and memory.
What's not to love about berries?
But what do you do when you get all that juicy goodness home? 
Here are 10 yummy, healthy ways to enjoy those fresh berries:
1.  Wash and eat right out of the package!
2.  Add to whole-wheat pancake batter for berry pancakes.  Even
better, top your pancakes with berries and all-natural maple syrup.
3.  Top with fresh whipped cream.
4.  Sprinkle over all-natural vanilla ice cream.
5.  Layer in a parfait cup or glass with organic vanilla yogurt and
crunchy granola or cereal.
6.  Speaking of cereal, make sure your summer breakfast cereal
always has berries on top!
7.  Place berries individually on cookie sheet and freeze.  When
frozen solid, put berries in a freezer bag.  Now you can enjoy fresh
berries in February!
8.  Use some of those frozen berries now, as delicious "ice cubes"
for your water, iced tea, lemonade or other summer beverages.
9.  Use to decorate the tops of cakes and cupcakes. 
10. Add to a fruit salad with apples, bananas, grapes, melon and
kiwi for a refreshing side dish.
And there you have it!  I bet you have a few other ideas yourself.
If you're looking for a fast and easy dessert this Fourth of July,
nothing says "red, white and blue" better than strawberries,
blueberries and whipped cream.  Let the kids add sprinkles!

It's going to be 90 degrees and humid here today, so you
can expect me to quit whining about the weather.   :-)
Now that school's out and summer is officially here (as of June 21),
I hope you're enjoying a great beginning to your best summer
season yet.

Until next time, "keep it real"!
