Berry Picking For Health And Friends

The LargeheartedBoy and I just got back from a local pick-it-yourself farm. I believe in supporting local businesses and especially growers of locally grown organic produce. We plan to go back as often as we can this summer and enjoy the fruits of our friends' labor.

So I thought I would link to some sites and resources for the health benefits of what we pick. Todays foray yielded raspberries and strawberries:

Heinerman' New Encyclopedia of Fruits and Vegetables says that raspberry leaf tea makes for easy births. A National Cancer Institute publication (acrobat) written by Dr. Linda Nebeling discusses phytochemicals and the vitamins and fiber present in fruits and vegetables that help keep us healthy.
