My favourite time of the year is finally here - season of fresh berries!
Yesterday we went picking some blueberries after work. There wasn't many in the forest (someone probably was there before us), but we got enough for making a cake and some dessert cream.
Mosquitoes tried to eat us alive, but both I and Oliver were brave and picked out boxes full of berries.
Blueberries are very good for health, they have a diverse range of micronutrients, with notably high levels of the essential dietary mineral manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K and dietary fiber.
I'm not crazy about organic food, but whenever possible, I try to use fresh and clean nutriments from my own area, so I can be sure there are no food preservatives or E numbers involved.
