Quick and Healthy Recipes

One of the things I like about berries is that they taste so good when eaten fresh - just pick them from the plant, maybe wash them with some water and you have healthy snack already prepared.


Also, berries can be prepared in many other ways: in various pies, fruit salads, as part of pancake and cakes in general filling, as ice-cream etc.

Here are some recipes we have tried and have found them to be - great! Will you do exactly what we did, or you will adjust it to your personal need, is all up to you.

Enjoy and Bone Appetite! :)
