I am trying to eat healthier, shed some weight, workout more…you know,  relive the New Year’s resolutions from the past 15 years…anyway, I spotted an interesting study about the power of berries!

Surprisingly, the biggest berry eaters consumed only a single half cup serving of blueberries or two half cup servings of strawberries each week.”
