That’s a question posed by yesterday’s WSJ article about “nutritional royalty.” Natural, beautiful, low on the glycemic index, and rich in antioxidants, “super” berries are finding their way into the main stream. Much of the exotic fruit is imported from great distances resulting in environmental impact. Whenever possible support local farmers.
Two of our current favorite ways to use this special fruit: in the crust of our Banana Berry Super Fruit Tart and as a topping on the Banana Breakfast Bowl instead of cacao nibs. Splurge on a package of dried Goji or Acai Berries the next time you feel like treating yourself to a chocolate truffle – you’re worth it!
