No, this isn't a post about me singing or even feeling sad or depressed. Rather, it has everything to do with happily making (and eating) delicious blueberry muffins in July, the high season for this tiny fruit in the eastern United States. I searched through several recipes collected over the years (but never actually made) and I settled on one from Martha Stewart's Living magazine from July 2000. This recipe was the easiest with ingredients I actually had in my pantry and refrigerator.
- One cup of blueberries contains 16% fiber.
- Blueberries are a source of Vitamins A and C, potassium and folate.
- Blueberries are very low in fat and sodium, and high in dietary fiber and potassium – and only 40 calories per ½ cup serving.
- Blueberries are about 85% water
