B.C. blueberries support New Year healthy living goals

Darpan News Desk, 12 Dec, 2016
  • B.C. blueberries support New Year healthy living goals
For many, the New Year means a renewed focus on a healthy lifestyle including more exercise and eating better. B.C. blueberries can't help with the exercise part, but frozen blueberries can be easily incorporated into pre- or post-workout snacks.
 
A pre-workout bite can hold off growling stomachs long enough to get you through a workout while post-workout snacks can keep you fueled until dinner is ready. Enjoy our Blueberry Granola Bars before exercising, and our Blueberry Coconut Chia Pudding with Grapefruit as a satisfying post-workout option. Recipes for both are below.
 
It is no secret that blueberries are one of the best choices to include in a healthy diet. They are considered to be one of the leading "superfoods" by researchers in Canada and U.S. and all you need is a 125ml (½ cup) serving! That small amount of blueberries is one of the 7-10 daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended by the Canadian Food Guide, and contains 3.6 grams of dietary fibre, virtually no fat, and just 80 calories. 
 
These recipes are among more than 100 others available at BCBlueberry.com.

Wild Mushroom Biryani

Wild Mushroom Biryani
This impressive dish does require a little extra effort that a normal curry but all it needs to go with it is a simple raita and if you can then a green or salad on the side but anything more would detract from the biryani. I like to use a few different types of mushroom so that there are different textures as well as flavours, choose those you like and if your budget allows, buy a few wild, special mushrooms, if not stick to shiitake, oyster and large chestnut mushrooms. Balance the flavour of your sauce using the cream or tomato puree and season knowing that the rice is barely seasoned.
