My favorite breakfast in the summer is my whole wheat waffles with organic maple syrup and fresh fruit. I use fresh blueberries because they are a superfood. Blueberries are low in calories but high in nutrients. They are the “king” of antioxidant foods and help reduce DNA damage, which may protect against aging and cancer. They also lower blood pressure and help prevent heart disease, maintain brain function and memory, among others.
I believe that God gave us food to eat in its natural state to keep us healthy. In the summer, I always get fresh blueberries from a local farm and buy enough to freeze for the winter. My whole wheat waffles are also healthy because I grind organic wheat berries, which have all the nutrition.
May God bless you and your family this summer!
