Makes me feel so sad that the PNW blueberry season is coming to an end.
😢.
The U-pick farms will stop offering this perfect treat any day now. So my kids went blueberry picking, and just went crazy! (That’s the thing about blueberries—touch a clump of ripe ones and 20 berries fall into your pail. Makes you feel like a bad-ass!)
💪.
Needless to say, I have been scarfing berries all day! I know blueberries get a lot of press, so this info seems redundant, but some things are worth repeating!
🤸‍♀️.
Blueberries are…
.
...rich in phytonutrients that have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory effects, like anthocyanins, esveratrol,quercetin, myricetin, and kaempferol...
.
...consistently shown to have heart-healthy benefits, like reducing inflammation in blood vessels and lowering blood pressure.
.
...low on the Glycemic Index, and high in fiber.
.
...shown to protect nerve cells from oxidative damage (hello, brain food!)
.
...known to induce cell death in several kinds of cancer cells.
😲.
Besides all this, they are delicious pretty much any way you eat ‘em! Get ‘em while you can!

Refreshing is crossing a stream of glacier melt in your bare feet. Instead of balancing precariously on rocks if no obvious avenue presents itself, it’s worth the time to take off your shoes.

Just a bunch of Seattle transplants, a houseboat, and a giant peacock (not pictured). #LakeUnion #Seattle #SeattleLife

Fun day crabbing with these awesome people. 🦀 #lovemyclients #lovemyjob #pnwsummers #crabbing #boatlife

I guess this means I’m now ready to go on Deadliest Catch. 🦀 #crabbing #pnwsummers

Ethan loves to go blackberry picking every summer. For him, this means strolling around, picking the occasional perfect one, and continually asking if we have enough for a pie yet. 😋 Alaina however, actually helped fill the bucket while stuffing herself with berries. #greatmemories #blackberries #blackberryseason #pnwsummers #everysummer #wearemakingpie #blackberrypie #toohottoturntheovenon #stainedfingers #stainedlips #itwasagoodday

Beauty of the Pacific Northwest unfiltered. 🌲 Took the girls over to Washington yesterday to escape the heat & was reminded how lucky we are to have spots like this 30 mins away from Portland. #pnwsummers #nevernotnaked

My apartment is full of industrial fans and dehumidifiers right now to dry out the water from a burst pipe, but at least I still have the mountains to retreat to! #seattlelife
