Blueberry Chicken Salad

 

July is National Blueberry Month!  I absolutely love blueberries, not just for the superb taste, but for all the awesome nutrition they contain. Blueberries have polyphenolic compounds that help decrease oxidative stress, lower inflammation (which is the root of many chronic diseases), and improve the healthy of the gut microbiome.  There are lots of delicious ways to include blueberries in your diet:

 

1. Add 1/2 cup frozen blueberries to your daily green smoothie

2. Enjoy fresh blueberries added to gluten-free oatmeal or grain-free cereal

3. Top a salad with fresh blueberries

4. Make a homemade blueberry popsicle

5. Add fresh blueberries to your chicken salad recipe

6. Add dried blueberries to homemade trail mix

7. Top a gluten-free pancake with fresh blueberries

8. Make your own low-sugar blueberry jam

9. Add blueberries to water to create your own blueberry-infused water

10. Top dairy-free yogurt with fresh blueberries

 

Check out this fabulous blueberry chicken salad recipe - it's perfect for a hot summer day!
