Blueberry Nutrition Benefits

Blueberries are an excellent source of dietary fibre, with one cup providing 3.6 grams (14% of your daily needs).

They’re also a great source of micronutrients, like: 

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin K
  • vitamin B6
  • manganese

Blueberries are also rich in antioxidants called anthocyanins, which provide many protective health benefits.

Ricotta Nutrition Benefits

Ricotta cheese is a great source of complete protein – a 1/2-cup serving provides about 12 grams.

That same 1/2-cup serving also provides about 20% of your daily calcium intake.

Ricotta also contains smaller amounts of other micronutrients, like:

  • vitamin B12
  • vitamin B6
  • magnesium
  • iron
  • potassium
