The great thing about crepes is that they make you feel extra fancy (like a Lord or Countess in Downton Abbey), but they're actually quite simple to make - even for a "downstairs" kind of life! ;-)
Crepes are also a perfect way to incorporate more berries into your diet.
Berries are nature's perfect little package for big nutrition! (Good things come in small packages, after all!)
The Health Benefits of Berries
1. Berries are full of phytonutrients, which are the healing, beneficial substances found in plants known to promote heath and protect against disease. Phytonutrients come from the richly colored pigments, flavors, fiber, enzymes, and vitamin-like compounds in fruits and vegetables. Some of the healthiest pigments are chlorophyll, carotenes, and flavonoids. The greater the variety and the deeper the color of the plant foods you eat, the higher the concentration of phytonutrients and their power to prevent inflammation and promote health.
2. Berries are rich in antioxidants. These prevent free-radical damage in the body, which can thereby prevent accelerating aging and disease. Antioxidants tend to be in highly colored fruits and vegetables - squashes, dark leafy greens, red and yellow peppers, and blue and red berries. Vitamins A, C, E and the minerals zinc and selenium are antioxidants. The pigments in berries also contain antioxidants. (Read more about antioxidants.)
