This roadside stall is only 5 minutes walk away from home. I often pick up a box or two of their yummy blueberries or strawberries. All the produce they sell is locally grown.
Blueberries health benefits are extraordinary, they can prevent and even reverse some deadly diseases! Compared with 60 other fruits and vegetables, blueberries came out on top. That's because blueberries are bursting with nutrition and flavor, yet low in calories, fat and sodium.
Blueberry nutrition includes significant amounts of fiber, vitamins A and C, magnesium, potassium and iron.
Much of blueberries health benefits comes from antioxidants called anthocyanidins, which can neutralize free radical cell damage and help ward off age-related memory problems, cataracts, glaucoma, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, peptic ulcers, dementia, heart disease and cancer.
Most days I make a smoothie with half a cup of fresh blueberries and milk. During the winter I'll use frozen blueberries. I feel Good!

As many as 5,000 people are estimated to have participated in Seattle's March and Rally for Health Care Reform on May 30, 2009.

Now is the time for health care reform. Tens of thousands of people die every year in this country because of a lack of health coverage. Countless others struggle under crushing medical debt or suffer through treatable illnesses. People of color, particularly African Americans, Native Americans, and Latinos, face poorer health outcomes and are less likely to have health coverage.

Health care reform won’t happen without a grassroots movement. President Obama has repeated what FDR said when he was being lobbied to pass some of the progressive social programs of the New Deal: “Make me do it.”

Major marches and rallies have influenced policy makers throughout the history of our country. and now is the time to demonstrate the will of the people and raise the demand for quality, affordable health care for all.

The May 30th March for Health Care will build toward health care reform efforts on a national scale. States around the country will be holding events throughout April and May that build to a June 25th national event with tens of thousands of people in Washington D.C.

Mothers Leading the Way: The mother's theme puts forward a powerful message that connects people across communities to the fight for national health care reform. The march is for everyone â€" not for mothers only! But the theme is important because regardless of a person’s personal connection to motherhood, highlighting mothers highlights the impact the health care system has on our families and on our communities.

Meanwhile, the median expense paid by women under 45 years old using highâ€'deductible health plans is 66-0 more than it is for men. A year ago, 74.6 percent of health care workers in America identified as women. And while we recognize that not all women are mothers, women as mothers play a significant role in their families’ health care, with 8 in 10 mothers taking on the chief responsibility for their children’s health care.
