Berry Great Ways To Get Healthy In The New Year


2022 is right around the corner, and fresh berries from California Giant Berry Farms are packed full of nutrients to help you start the new year off right.

Fresh berries are packed with vitamins and minerals, which makes them an excellent choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.

Kickstart Your Mornings

Make this homemade Blueberry & Cashew Granola as simple breakfast meal prep.  Enjoy this crunchy treat without the added sugars included in store-bought granola. Also, you can start simple in the New Year with this Back to Basics Blueberry Smoothie, packed full of antioxidants and fiber.

 Berry Fact: Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, Vitamins C & K, and fiber, so you can feel good about making them the star of your breakfast.

Mid-Day Meals

This Blackberry Avocado Chicken Salad makes for a versatile lunch that can be enjoyed on a bed of lettuce, on a croissant, or by itself with veggies or crackers. The mayo is replaced with avocado, creating a lunch that’s rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Looking for a grab-and-go lunch? These convenient Taco Mason Jars make for a tasty meal that can be prepared for an entire week of lunches.


Berry Fact: Just one serving (1 cup) of blackberries provides more vitamin K than a peach and is thought to boost brain health! 

Nutrient-Rich Dinners

Finish off the day with delicious and vibrant meals like this Grilled Chicken with Blueberry Balsamic Glaze or with a Berry Buddha Bowl. The balsamic glaze within the chicken dish steals the show with its dynamic flavors of onion, chili paste, blueberry, and honey. The Berry Buddha Bowl is loaded with protein from chickpeas and grilled chicken breast. Blueberries add their mildly sweet flavor to contrast notes of curry, parsley, and pepper.


Berry Fact: Blueberries are certified Heart Healthy by the American Heart Association, and there are only 80 calories in each 1 cup serving!
