Nature’s cereal (recipe)

April 30, 2021

Berries mix in a bowl

Looking for a vibrant and refreshing breakfast? This food trend circulating on social media is packed with heart-healthy antioxidants and fiber.

According to Bridget Quinn, clinical dietitian at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, fueling up with berries is a wonderful way to start your day.

“Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants — specifically blueberries, pomegranates and blackberries,” says Quinn. “Pomegranates contain an antioxidant called punicalagin, which has been shown to help reduce inflammation. Berries also provide fiber, which is important for heart health and weight management.”

Add this simple and versatile recipe for nature’s cereal to your breakfast rotation.
