We went blackberry picking whilst walking the dogs this evening. We got quite a haul ! 600g to be precise.
All berries are packed with goodness: vitamins – C in particular; minerals, phytonutrients and fibre. They’re often labelled as superfoods.
They are also a great food for including in your diet if you’re trying to lose weight. First of all because they are low on the glycaemic index, meaning they raise your blood sugar only very slowly. Second, because they are nutrient dense and calorie sparse. Blackberries have only 43 calories per 100g, which means that haul in the photo comes in just under 260 calories. So you can have a decent face full!
Try frozen berries for convenience. No thorns!
