The Blues

Musically speaking, the “blues” can take on many shades and tones. Some blues can be mellow, moody, or jazzy (B.B. King, Buddy Guy).

More progressive styles of blues feature blues-based guitar chord structures and riffs which can rock the house down (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Gaines).

ZZ Top’s “El Diablo,” and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s version of “Crossroads” are two favorites that rock the house.

Blueberry (Vaccinium L.)

Blueberrycouncil.org states that blueberries are low in fat, packed with vitamins C and K, a good source of fiber, and an excellent source of manganese.

According to authoritynutrition.com, blueberries are the king of antioxidants, which protect bodies from damage by free radicals, unstable molecules that can damage cellular structures and contribute to aging and diseases like cancer.

Blueberries are believed to contain the highest antioxidant capacity of ALL commonly consumed fruits and vegetables.

Zero528 agrees that blueberries taste YUMMY! Especially in this purple-shaded “Blues in the Night” fruit smoothie blend. Add some peanut butter and WHOA!
