Any of those eat healthy magazines, websites, etc. They always suggest blueberries, and raspberries. Oh, have an omlet made with egg whites, and 1 tsp blueberries on the side! Or a yogurt parfait, with 1 tsp blueberries, 1 tsp raspberries...........yummy!

****---blueberries and rasberries are sold by the HALF pint, if you can find them. Then, they cost anywhere from $4+$6 + per half PINT. That's more than steak! And once I use 1 tsp of such berries, WTH do I do with the rest---let them rot in the fridge? come on, get real!

Because they are delicious, attractive and a healthy super food!

Buy them when they are in season and cheap, and freeze them. Then you will have them for recipes year 'round, and you can use them a little at a time.

Really? I just thought because they were blue!

I buy a 3lb bag of frozen organic blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cherries and pomegranate seeds at Costco for about $10. I use what I want in my yogurt or smoothies, no waste.

You can eat them after a meal! But I agree, when I experienced that it got annoying. It works out for families because you can dump them to somebody else.

On Sunday, I paid $1.49 for a PINT of blueberries and 1.59 for a 1/2 pint of blackberries at the local Aldi.

Blueberries stay good for quite awhile. Rapsberries, not so much. Stay with frozen, they are cheaper and just as good.

Eat them later? Use them with another recipe? If they are suggested as often as you make them out to be, I'm sure you can find other uses for them.

Blueberries are very healthy - if you don't want to eat them, don't. But when looking for health food suggestions, you have to expect they will crop up often.

I'm not big on them myself, I don't eat them on their own, I only like them IN things, like blueberry muffins or pancakes, fruit salad, in my cereal, or a mixed berry smoothie. There's lots of ways you can use the extras.

the best snack in the world is a hand full of blueberries. I am a real bargain hunter with my grocery shopping but about 2 years ago I gave myself permission to always buy blueberries no matter the cost. The ONE selfish thing I do for myself. My kids eat lots of fruits and I always keep fruits on hand but they know to ask permission before getting into mama's blueberries.
