Raspberries. Berries are an Austin household favorite - they are so good for you, and taste delicious! Raspberries are especially healthy, as they are a good source of vitamin C and fiber, provide folate and magnesium, and deliver up two of the B vitamins (B2 and B3). But the best part? Raspberries are an excellent source of antioxidants - they have 50% more antioxidant potential than strawberries! I use them in smoothies, add to yogurt or ice cream, and just eat them on their own. Be sure to buy them in organic form if you can - commercial varieties may use lots of pesticides.
