Acadia Breakfast Bowl

Acadia Breakfast Bowl

Dear Readers,

 

I named this fiber and antioxidant rich blueberry chia oatmeal bowl after the gorgeous Acadia National Park located in Maine.

Wild blueberries are the official fruit of this Northeastern state.

They are nutritional powerhouses: high in Vitamin C, manganese and antioxidants. On top of that, the phytonutrients in blueberries may be associated with delayed cognitive aging. Sounds good to me! Darn, there was something else I was going to share with you about blueberries…but I can’t remember. Anyway, to learn more about how blueberries can slow brain aging, watch here.

  1. This is all so beautiful. Who could resist that bowl! My stepson’s girlfriend was just talking about Acadia while we were hiking in the summer-brown desert. She mentioned blueberries…I think we need to do a summer hiking trip there.
