    Did you know that blueberries protect the brain, and also prevent insulin spikes from occurring? This makes blueberries the perfect addition to any breakfast food that uses any form of concentrated simple sugar, such as cane sugar, maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar.  Here’s the catch: research also shows that in order to unlock these…
