Mixed BerriesBlueberries, blackberries, red and black currants, raspberries, rose hips and even the more Nordic lingonberries, cloudberries are better than regular fruit, according to Litfeldt. They're sweet without using any refined sugar, so they're a better way to satisfy your sweet tooth than a can of soda of a slice of cake. If you don’t have access to Scandinavian lingonberries or cloudberries, opt for the more abundant (and just as antioxidant-rich) blueberries, raspberries and blackberries in the U.S. Hahnemann says that the Nordic region is rich in berries because of all the light during the summer, which keeps the fruits rich in antioxidants, ripe and tasty. High in vitamin C, berries are eaten morning through night in Scandinavia—added to AM yogurt and oatmeal, and added to teas and grilled alongside fish and meats in the evening.
