Wild Blackberries

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!)
