4 Reasons Why You Should Include Blueberries in a Thanksgiving Celebration

Posted On: November 9, 2018

Why should blueberries be left out in one of the biggest foodie holidays of the year? What a perfect occasion to incorporate the sweet and sour taste of the small berry on the holiday table as we share stories, memories and thankful notes with our most loved ones. While sharing the fresh taste of our berries, it is also important to remind our families we are giving them only the best nutrients. From our blueberry fields in Peru directly to your table, these tiny yet nutrient-rich berries have been harvested with love and sustainable practices. This holiday season, we recommend to keep it simple and enjoy the little things in life!

 

 

Taste
There is nothing like a sweet-sour splashy taste of sustainably harvested blueberries. They can be included in any Thanksgiving dish and contribute with that sweet taste of wildness. Add them to your leafy salad for a sweet burst, or compliment your savory main with a tangy glaze like this one here. There is no comparing a store-bought dessert with a freshly baked blueberry cheesecake made by Grandma, so make your Grandma proud and give our step-by-step recipe for a delectable dessert a try. Everyone will thank you for it.

 

 

Color
Ending the fall season and transitioning to winter is not an easy move. The leaves are falling by this time of the year, and there is nothing like a true-blue blueberry pie or turkey stuffing to feel cozy inside. Just picture this recipe: On a greased baking dish, spread half a cup of fresh blueberries, diced onions, garlic, celery, sage and thyme to a cup of bread cubes and bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy the taste and colorful presentation of this unique stuffing, sure to brighten up the dinner table!

 

 

Health
Why should the holidays keep you from pursuing a healthy lifestyle? What better way to keep everyone in the family in a healthy mode than with the incorporation of our fresh blueberries. High in antioxidants and fiber, this low calorie fruit will satisfy your hunger or need for a sweet indulgence in a half a cup serving. Place a small bowl of fresh berries on the table before or after dinner as a way to cut unhealthy cravings. Check out these three reasons why blueberries enjoy a sweet victory over artificial snacks here.

 

 

Tradition
In memory of the origin of Thanksgiving Day, blueberries are the essential ingredient that will commemorate the American past in a single dish. The presence of blueberries provides the nod to Native American traditional food, as there are three known native North American fruits: grapes, cranberries and wild blueberries. It would be a failure to leave out these finger-food fruits from the Thanksgiving dinner table, especially considering their taste, color, and health benefits.
