Blueberries and a Punch Bowl Trifle for the Fourth of July


July is Blueberry Month     
                                             
sponsored by http://www.bellybusterdiet.com/

Blueberries have long been recognized as the fruit with the most antioxidants. The United States Department of Agriculture on May 8th, 1999, proclaimed July to be National Blueberry Month. Blueberries are grown in 35 states, with the United States producing over 90% of the worlds supply.
One of the easiest fruits to prepare and serve, these tasty berries offer as much as four times as many health-giving antioxidants than other fruits and veggies. Because blueberries have few natural pests, (other than birds), pesticides are generally unnecessary when growing them. A powerhouse among fruits, blueberries rich antioxidants are valued for their cancer and heart disease fighting properties. They are also shown to help improve memory, balance, and coordination.

Adding fresh summer blueberries are a great way to give a little health punch to some of your favorite dishes. Try them in yoghurt, pancakes, muffins, on your salad, over ice cream and even blueberry salsa.
We invite you to enjoy a few of our tasty blueberry recipes below and tell us the ways you like to eat these healthy berry bites.

Care Solutions
* Don’t wash berries until just before using to prevent berries from becoming mushy.
* Chill berries soon after picking to increase shelf life. If refrigerated, fresh-picked blueberries will keep 10 to 14 days.
* Freeze berries in freezer containers without washing to keep the skins from toughening.
Fun Facts
* The blueberry is the second most popular berry in the U.S. The strawberry is number one. Over 200 million pounds of blueberries are grown commercially each year.
* Blueberries contain significant quantities of both antibacterial and antiviral compounds, and have a reputation of fighting infections. They may also help protect against heart disease.
* The blueberry muffin is the official muffin of Minnesota.
* Blueberry Jelly Bellies were created especially for former president Ronald Reagan.
* The blueberry is the official state fruit of New Jersey, which also raises the most cultivated fresh blueberries in the United States.

Punch Bowl Cake (Great for July 4th because of it's Patriotic Look!)
2 pkg of pudding mix
2 pkgs of strawberry jello mix
2 cups of blueberries

Zucchini Crust Pizza


zucchini-crust-pizza.jpg
Pizza is one of those foods that is notoriously difficult to eat when you have diabetes.  But you can make your own crust with either zucchini or cauliflower, both of which are very low in carbs, and your sugar will be fine! If you use zucchini, pat it dry with a paper towel or put it under the broiler for a few minutes to get some of the liquid off of it because it may be soggy if you don't.

Olive oil and flour for the pan
2 cups (packed) grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup grated mozzarella
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 F. Drizzle a little olive oil in a 10" pie pan and coat lightly with flour.
Combine the zucchini, eggs, flour, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl and mix well. Spread into the pie pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. About halfway through the baking, brush with the remaining olive oil. Remove from oven. When it has cooled for about 10 minutes, use a spatula to loosen the crust from the pan so it won't break later.
Top with your favorite pizza items and bake at 400 F until heated through.

Cherry Chipotle Chicken Barbeque

This dish is simple to make and oh sooo good! 

 1 Chicken,  cut up, or 4-6 chicken breasts

 1 Can Comstock Lite Cherry Pie Filling 

1/4 cup Walden Farms Chipotle Ranch Dressing

Tajin seasoning  (it is a lime and chili seasoning)

 

Mix 1/2 can of Lite Pie filling with the Chipotle Dressing and chop the cherries with a fork. Don't put many of the cherries in it, mainly the goo and reserve the cherries for dessert.  Baste the  chicken with the mixture and then sprinkle each piece with about a 1/4 tsp. of Tajin. Grill until done for some of the best BBQ you have ever tasted.

For a menu for Memorial Day: Find the Punch Bowl Cake listed here and do in Red,  White and Blue or do the Sweet and Sour Gelatin Ring with the left over cherries. (recipe is also in here). Grill Corn with Tajin on it if you are on maintenance or serve melons with Tajin on it if you are not and a summer salad with mixed grilled veggies.

Can purchase Walden Farms products at our clinics 1-888-657-5042.
