Eating Whole Fruits Linked To Lower Diabetes Risk

Eating Whole Fruits Linked To Lower Diabetes Risk



When it comes to lowering your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, eating whole fruit — and not the juice form — could do you some good, according to a new study.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found an association between eating at least two servings of fruit a week and having a 23 percent lower risk of diabetes, compared with eating less than a serving of fruit a month. Blueberries, grapes and apples seemed to be especially linked with the reduced diabetes risk.

Meanwhile, people who drank one serving or more of juice a day had up to a 21 percent higher risk of diabetes.

“Our data further endorse current recommendations on increasing whole fruits, but not fruit juice, as a measure for diabetes prevention,” study researcher Isao Muraki, a research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard, said in a statement. “And our novel findings may help refine this recommendation to facilitate diabetes prevention.”…..

Blueberries and cranberries are two more foods that are easy to buy when in abundance and freeze for later. Place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place the sheet in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, you can transfer them to a resealable plastic bag. Frozen berries are great in smoothies, pies, and even eating cold!

Healthy Berry Recipes
Enjoy these sweet and savory healthy berry recipes with blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
Berries have health benefits for the whole body—from your brain to your bones. Blueberries’ antioxidants may help keep your memory sharp as you age; raspberries contain ellagic acid, a compound with anti-cancer properties; and strawberries are high in vitamin C, which helps to maintain firm and younger-looking skin. Berries boast a healthy dose of fiber as well and recent research suggests that the polyphenols in berries keep bones strong and help your heart by lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol.



Couscous & Fruit Salad
Try this fruit-and-nut-studded couscous salad alongside grilled salmon or chicken for supper or on its own for a fresh lunchbox treat…..



Summer Berry Pudding
A summer pudding is a British warm-weather wonder—not steamed like a sticky pudding but an easy dish that sets up thanks to the pectin in the berries. Be sure to use firm, bakery-quality bread…..

Buddy up with blueberries

June 7, 2013 at 9:35 AM | Posted in fruits | 2 Comments

Another very good article from our local newspaper, this time on Blueberries.




Buddy up with blueberries
They pack health benefits. Here are some ways to eat them.


Oakwood resident Polly Petricola often starts the day with blueberries. “My very favorite breakfast is coffee-flavored yogurt with a little honey, a scoop of granola and fresh blueberries,” she says.
Smart woman. Blueberries, one of the few fruits native to North America, is loaded with good-for-you nutrients.

“First, blueberries are low in calories, about 84 in a cup,” says Debbie Serenius, a registered dietician in Kettering. “They are a source of vitamins K and C. What makes blueberries even more special is that they have anti-inflammatories and antioxidants that protect us from cancer and help our cardio-vascular systems.”

In fact, blueberries are among the highest anti-oxidant value fruits. Antioxidants are thought to neutralize free radicals, which can damage cells and lead to diseases such as cancer.

The word is out.

“Blueberries are much more popular ever since people learned how good they are for you,” reports Joyce Fulton of Fulton Farms on Ohio 202 in Troy.

Having the blue wonders at breakfast is as easy as sprinkling them on cereal or grabbing a handful. Of course, there’s always breakfast at the Blueberry Café in Bellbrook or ordering blueberry pancakes at your favorite pancake place.

Blueberries are for snacking, salads, toppings, smoothies, desserts — the list is as broad as the many cookbooks that feature the little blue powerhouses. Nutrition-minded people seek out recipes that team up blueberries with other healthy ingredients. But sometimes, it’s fun to splurge on a tasty treat, and including blueberries does make you feel less guilty.

“My generation uses blueberries in crisps and pies,” Fulton says. “But young people ‘go straight’ and put them right on salads and into healthier recipes.”

When using blueberries in a recipe, wash and pat dry first. To keep them from “bleeding” into a mixture, add blueberries as the last ingredient and gently fold.

1/2 cup light olive oil
1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
10 ounces fresh spinach, torn
4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1 cup fresh blueberry, washed and dried
1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
In a jar, combine oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, and salt and shake well. In a large salad bowl, toss the spinach, with half of the cheese, half of the blueberries, and half of the pecans. Add enough dressing to coat and toss gently. Garnish salad with remaining cheese, fruit, and pecans.

SOURCE: Fresh Market, West Chester

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar, divided
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups fresh blueberries, washed and dried
16 ounces sour cream
2 egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch springform pan. Beat together butter and 1/3 cup sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Blend in one egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a seperate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and add to butter mixture, mixing until well blended. Spread onto bottom of prepared pan; cover with blueberries. Combine remaining 1/3 cup sugar, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla, sour cream, egg yolks and cardamom; pour over blueberries.

Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until set, being careful not to overbake. Allow to cool 10 minutes before loosening rim of pan. Allow cake to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Choosing blueberries
The soil in this area makes it difficult to grow blueberries as a crop but fresh, delicious blueberries are easy to come by all summer long at produce stands, farm stands and in the grocery.

Follow these tips when buying:

Look for blueberries that are firm, dry, plump and smooth.
Avoid containers of berries with juice stains. (Some berries are crushed, and there may be mold.)
“Color should be purple-blue to blue-black with a silver frost,” says Zack Cusick, produce manager at Fresh Market at the Voice of America Centre in West Chester.
“Blueberries should be in the cooler and then go right to your refrigerator,” Cusik says. “They stay fresh in the fridge for about five days.”
Wash blueberries just before you’re going to use them.
To freeze, most people say don’t wash first. Make sure blueberries are completely dry and store in containers or freezer bags. Wash before using.
