How often Should we Consume Blueberries?

Fig 01- Blueberries in the bowl

Actually, there are a lot of berries species in the world, no less than 400 different kinds. In term of colors, they could be:

- black
- purple
- white
- yellow
- red

Blueberry is one of my favorite fruits in the berries “group.” Other favorite berries include:

- strawberry
- blackberry
- raspberry

Ruairi Robertson (published in healthline, August 19, 2020) suggest to consume at least 8 kinds of berries.

It is because they are healthiest berries. I have mentioned 3 kinds (excluded blackberry), other 5 kinds of berries are:

- Goji berries
- Bilberries
- Acai berries
- Cranberries
- Grapes

In case of blueberry, there are a lot of health benefits, just some (Megan Ware, written in MedicalNewsToday, 2017):

- Lowering blood pressure
- Managing diabetes
- Protecting against heart disease
- Preventing cancer
- Healthy digestion, weight loss, and feeling full

The question then: How often Should we Consume Blueberries?

As recommended by Harvard Health Publishing (June 17, 2020): “Eat blueberries three times per week.”


  1. Oh great! I am eating them three days a week, twice in different smoothies in the week (other days I do other fruits in them) and in the weekends on sunday with pancakes or french toast!
    Interesting article!

  2. Excellent information, Evi. I understand that they are also very good at preventing urinary infections. At home we eat a lot of blueberries. We even make liquors...

    The big hugest hug!!

  3. Me gustan los arandanos muy buena entrada , Te mando un beso

  4. My husband loves all sorts of berries...he would eat them daily if available!

  5. Me encantan, los consumo, son deliciosos y nutritivos. Saludos amiga.

  6. Frutti piccoli e coloratissimi, che giovano alla nostra salute...
    Un sorriso,silvia

  7. Adoro qualquer fruta em bagas desde que seja comestível para o género humano. Gosto de Mirtilos tenham a cor que tiverem.
    Gostei de ler os benefícios que estas frutos - e outras frutos -originam na saúde humana.

  8. Me encantan! Esta misma mañana los he desayunado y siempre que puedo los pongo en muffins o bizcochos ¡Besos mil!

  9. I had no idea that there was so many different berries, or that grapes counted as berries lol. I only grapes that I like are black grapes which aren't sold very often where I live. I do like raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries, I just prefer vegetables over fruits tbh.

  10. Sweet post. I think the balancing act is getting through the whole package before it goes bad. Especially fresh ones. We used to grow lovely raspberries, but those plants only last so long.

  11. Here at home we love blueberries but we don't always eat three times a week.

  12. thank you for sharing such useful knowledge dear Evi !

    i like berries but we eat less here

  13. La mermelada de arándanos está riquísima. Besos.

  14. Solos no me gustan, pero sí como integrante de la mermelada de frutos rojos: arándanos y fresas
    Besos Evi

  15. I am trying to eat more berries.

  16. I don't like blueberries, but I love strawberries ahahah

  17. I say we should consume as many as we can, as often as we can!

  18. I love berries :) thanks for your sharing...

  19. I'm glad to know that blueberries have such great health benefits. They are my favorites next to strawberries.

  20. Very useful post! Thanks for the review. I love blueberries.

  21. Mi piacciono moltissimo i mirtilli...fanno un gran bene, un abbraccio

  22. Aku termasuk jarang makan berries mbak, paling strawberry aja sih, berry2 yg lainnya jarang, karna harus dibeli dimall, sedangkan aku udah ga pernah ke mall sejak pandemi ini, paling beli online hihihi

  23. Yummy :)

  24. I've never been a big fan of blueberries. I'll eat them here and there, but it's not something I buy often. Now strawberries are my favorite!

  25. Fantastic post! 

    Kisses :)    

  26. Thank you very much for the useful post!
