50 Ways to Eat Berries

March 22nd, 2012 at 12:12 pm

A few weeks ago I posted 52 Ways to Eat Kale, a round-up of delicious and healthy gluten-free recipes featuring my favorite leafy green. The post was incredibly popular and flew through the blogosphere at breakneck speed.

So I decided to tap into that same theme and share another 50 recipes with you that all central around…….berries!

Berries—blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, you name it—are among my top five “desert island” foods (along with kale, of course). With summer inching closer and closer each day, I found myself salivating over my laptop as I compiled this list of recipes and anxiously awaited for my beloved berries to come back into season.

Savor the flavor of the nature’s perfect fruit with this collection of nutritious gluten-free food from some of the most talented bloggers across the web.

Happy spring!
