Every once in awhile I feel like I stumble upon a treasure of nature – a reminder that we don’t need to process and refine our foods like crazy to enjoy rich and sweetly satisfying flavors. Today’s Foodie Find – Dried White Mulberries- is just such a treasure and PACKED with health-giving benefits!
We all know that berries are good for us, right? Well, White Mulberries are a unique source of the antioxidant Resveratrol, normally found in grapes and red wine. Resveratrol provides support for good cardiovascular health and a strong immune system and in some cases has been reported to relieve chronic inflammation. Resveratrol is of course also known to have many anti-aging benefits and it has been suggested that it can even help to inhibit the mutation of normal cells into cancerous cells. That’s a whole lot of health-benefiting goodness for just a little berry!
The best part? They are SO delicious. Truly nature’s candy, they have a caramel-like sweetness to them. A handful of these is a very satisfying sweet mid-afternoon pick-me-up!
Dried White Mulberries are available at Whole Foods and other organic markets. I think you’ll love this little super-berry and all its health-giving benefits!
Wishing you a happy, healthy Tuesday.
