Summer Berry Salad by @jesselwellness #salad #raspberries

Summer Berry Salad is the perfect healthy dessert or snack with sweet juicy berries, refreshing lemon, and a pinch of cinnamon to bring out the sweetness in the mixed berries.

This is a really simple recipe that you can play around with depending on what is in season and abundant at the farmer’s market.

Health Benefits of Antioxidant-packed Berries

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are all packed with antioxidants that neutralise free radicals which cause cellular damage. The health benefits of antioxidants found in berries include:

  • Slowing down the ageing process
  • Synthesising collagen, an important element of your bones, tendons, ligaments, and skin
  • Providing anti-cancer chemicals that halt cancer growth
  • Inhibiting the DNA binding of certain carcinogens
  • Improving memory
  • Supporting the cardiovascular system
