Waking up to something that’s sweet, delicious & healthy is always the beginning of a good day ahead.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because that’s when you kick start your metabolism and consume enough calories to keep you going up until your next snack / meal.

I always enjoy a fruitful breakfast & can never get enough of the many benefits of berries.
Berries are a healthy source of vitamins & minerals, including fiber, potassium and vitamin C.

Fiber is essential for a healthy digestive system, blackberries contain the most (7.6grams) of fiber per 1cup serving in comparison to other berries.
Vitamin C supports a healthy immune system and assists in fighting any infectious disease. A substantial amount of Vitamin C is essential daily in order to promote a healthy body. Strawberries contain the most (97.6 milligrams) per 1cup serving.
Berries are a great source of antioxidants, which assist in getting rid of toxins from the body by protecting cells from damage,these actions together help in preventing premature aging, free radical damage and cancerous diseases.
Berries also assist in healthy GI, Glycemic Index is a ranking of carbohydrate containing foods on a scale of 1-100, berries are low in GI. The lower the index the slower the breakdown from carbohydrate to sugar; which results in only minimal changes in sugar level – helps in controlling mood, and keeping you feeling fuller for longer.
