I don’t need any more reasons to eat my blueberries. I love them. Even so, here’s a bit of good news. University of Reading and the Peninsula Medical School in the South West of England researchers have found that the luscious little berries are effective at reversing age-related deficits in memory.
The study showed that a regular diet supplemented with blueberries fostered improvements in spatial working memory tasks in as little as three weeks of consuming the fruit.
So, eat your blueberries and you won’t forget that the deadline for this week’s Farmers Market Fare posts is Sunday, April 13, 2 p.m. EST. Submissions are welcome by email to farmerfare [at] gmail [dot] com or over at blogcarnival.com.
The post must be non-commercial and contain a recipe, photo or story about local food you prepared/purchased/picked up that week at a farmers market, CSA, garden/community garden or direct from a local food producer. Recipes are great posts, but personal stories are also of interest. Your post must also include a link to Eat. Drink. Better.
