Best healthy berry recipes

In the middle of summer, markets are positively bursting with fresh vegetables, greens, and (best of all) berries. Berries are pretty much nature’s candy. Plus, they’re loaded with cancer-fighting antioxidants and vitamins A and C, which boost the immune system and promote eye health, among many other benefits. Eating a handful straight from the carton (after washing, of course) has its merits, but here are a few more ambitious ideas to spark kitchen creativity. Berries are at their best for just a few short weeks each summer; so don’t wait! Grab a few containers (or better yet, pick your own) and give these healthy recipes a go!

Breakfast

1. Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes
This mile-high stack of pancakes with dairy-free coconut cream and strawberries makes quite the show-stopping breakfast. Plus, the pancakes are made with buckwheat flour and non-dairy milk so the whole dish is compltetely gluten-free and vegan.

2. Blueberry Banana Oatmeal Bread
Somewhere between coffee cake, banana bread, and blueberry pound cake, this healthy loaf is a great way to start the morning. Whole-wheat flour, applesauce,bananas, pecans, and plenty of fresh blueberries make it super-wholesome. Top with a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt for a protein boost.

3. Raspberry-Almond Muffin Tops
This Seinfeld-worthy recipe proves that the top really is the best part of the muffin. These honey-sweetened soft muffins are not too sweet and make a hearty breakfast when topped with a schmear of nut butter.

4. Blueberry-Hazelnut Muesli
Muesli, a classic Swiss breakfast cereal, is like granola’s healthier cousin. It’s kind of crunchy, kind of chewy, nutty, and not too sweet. This version, loaded with hazelnuts, blueberries, and coconut, is perfect with skim milk or yogurt.

5. Healthy Blackberry Muffins
Blueberry muffins are dime a dozen at any neighborhood bakery, but breakfast treats with blackberries are significantly harder to come by. The tart, juicy berries give these healthy muffins a nice burst of summer flavor.

  • The website Money-Rates.com has figured out the best and worst states to make a living. And sure, money is the big factor, including both salaries and the cost of living, as well as income taxes. But they also factor in unemployment rates and workplace safety. The worst three are California and Hawaii, for high taxes and cost of living that outweigh even their high wages, and Montana for low wages and poor workplace safety. You can see the full list here.
  • People in Arizona are used to triple-digit temperatures in the summer, but an extreme heat wave gripping the Southwest this week had temperatures rising to 120 degrees. At that extreme temperature, strange things begin to happen. >> Read more trending news Arizona residents have been posting photos on social media of objects that they say have melted due to the extreme heat. It's important to note that none of these photos have been independently verified. The melted mailbox photo prompted KSAZ to ask an expert if it was possible for extreme heat to do that kind of damage. The engineering expert said that while it was unlikely that the plastic post completely melted, the heat could have weakened it, causing it to fall over, KSAZ reported. As for the photos of melting street signs, KPNX verified via a transportation official that the damage to the sign was age-related, not specifically heat-related. And the photo of the melted trash bin? That was posted on Reddit in 2016, and many doubted its veracity then. One thing is for certain: The heat in Arizona is no joke. Flights were grounded temporarily this week at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix due to the extreme temperatures. Phoenix emergency rooms have seen an increase in burn cases, most contact burns from bare skin touching pavement or a hot car's interior, azcentral reported. Pet owners are urged to take precautions as an increase in heat-related emergencies has been reported at Arizona animal hospitals.

  • A 35-year tradition continues with the same five guys, on the same bench in the same location. John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer-Cleary, Dallas Burney, John Molony and John Dickson have been friends for more four decades, CNN reported. >> Read more trending news  Wardlaw and Dickson were the first two to meet.

In 1982, the five guys sat down on a bench and snapped their first photo.  Five years later, they did it again, repeating the pose to make the photo as close to the original as they could. Two rules apply to every photo they’ve taken.

  • The Supreme Court is taking on a new clash between gay rights and religion in a case about a wedding cake for a same-sex couple in Colorado. The justices said Monday they will consider whether a baker who objects to same-sex marriage on religious grounds can refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple. The case asks the high court to balance the religious rights of the baker against the couple's right to equal treatment under the law. Similar disputes have popped up across the United States. The decision to take on the case reflects renewed energy among the court's conservative justices, whose ranks have recently been bolstered by the addition of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the high court. The court will review a Colorado court decision that found baker Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Cakeshop discriminated against the gay couple under Colorado law. Phillips told the Supreme Court he has free speech and religious rights under the First Amendment that should protect him. He said he should not be compelled to bake a cake specifically to honor a same-sex marriage. Colorado's anti-discrimination law protects people on the basis of their sexual orientation. Charlie Craig and David Mullins filed a complaint against Phillips and his suburban Denver shop after Phillips said he would not create and decorate a cake in honor of their marriage. Colorado did not permit same-sex couples to marry until 2014. Two years earlier, Craig and Mullin were planning to fly to Massachusetts, where same-sex marriage was legal, and host a reception in Denver upon their return to Colorado. They wanted a cake for the occasion.
