5 ways to eat Raspberries

5 ways to eat Raspberries

Raspberries are delicious, but previously I had kind of viewed them as an indulgent food purchase and not because of their health properties, but rather the price. So when I saw them selling cheap at my local farmer's markets, naturally I grabbed a few punnets. It turns out, if you are buying raspberries outside of summer months in Australia, you are most likely sourcing them from Northern New South Wales, and Southern Queensland as they tend to grow better in a warmer climate.  

So what is so good about raspberries?

Here are just a few quick reasons to love them:

  • They are low in sugar and packed with nutrients, minerals and antioxidants that contribute to many functions in the body from getting that glowing skin, to helping you poop!

  • They are super low calorie- one of the 125g tubs delivers just under 250kj making them a great snack.

  • They are delicious!

How can you use raspberries?

  1. Top your cereal with them. This is a great tip if you are trying to reduce added sugar.

  2. Mix berries through plain or greek yoghurt for a quick snack.

  3. For a super quick breakfast, try this Raspberry Chia Pudding which can be made ahead of time.

  4. Want a sweet treat but don’t want to overindulge? Try this Raspberry Yoghurt Bark.  

    OR

  5. Eat on their own! They are that perfect mix between sweet and tart (kind of like the type of girl you’d bring home to your parents).


However you eat them, you can do so knowing they are not only delicious but good for you!
