Sometimes there is nothing more refreshing than a big bowl of ripe, juicy fruit. My favorite fruits happen to be of the berry variety. I love that they are so bright and colorful and full of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. In fact, berries are ranked at the top of the list when it comes to getting the most antioxidant bang for your buck.
