MMMM, blackberries

I haven't been posting as regularly here as I should. No particular reason, just haven't had a lot to write about.
I've been really enjoying the blackberries this season. Seems like they have been extra delicious. But what is up with the inconsistancy in a pint of berries?


One may be succulent and delicious, oozing juicy blackberry goodness, and the next, not so much. It may even be a little bitter. But, oh, when I hit a great one, it's possibly my favorite fruit. And it's healthy.

According to Driscoll's website:
A one-cup serving of blackberries provides:
60 Calories with 2g Protein and only 1g Fat
50% of your day's supply of Vitamin C
32% of your day's supply of Fiber
9% of your day's supply of Folic Acid
6% of your day's supply of Iron
4% of your day's supply of Calcium
4,654 ORAC Value

ORAC is the number assigned to a foods anti oxident value and is believed to aid in keeping us healthy in so many ways. many believe higher ORAC value foods help in prebventing the ravages of aging.

By the way, the USDA rates berries at 7700+, which makes them a nutritional powerhouse.

I'll have some toaster updates soon.

Oh, I'm with you. Blackberries are one of the best treats. Actually, most berries rate high with me: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries---yumm! And all of them are healthy.


I adore blackberries! I have already had a pint today. I eat as many as I can when they are in season!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
