Yes, I’m the woman on the side of the road picking wild blackberries
According to the Clean Eating Club, they are “rich in antioxidants, including vitamin c, ellagic acid and anthocyanins”. They also contain “calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, vitamins A and E, selenium and folate”.
Nutrition Data lists blackberries as a low calorie (62) and low fat (6) food – this is based on a 1 cup serving size.
The best way to eat this delicious fruit is to eat them raw, and mix them with other berries :) But, of course, it’s also fun to make a blackberry cobbler and/or blackberry ice cream! (Go ahead…you can indulge once in awhile!)
