[NaturalNews] I’ve been eating goji berries on an almost daily basis for at least six years. They’ve been part of Chinese Medicine for over 5,000 years, and they’re super dense in antioxidants, trace minerals, carotenoids and other health-promoting phytonutrients. But a lot of people don’t know how to really incorporate them into their diets! So below, you’ll discover five easy ways to eat more goji berries and experience their extraordinary health benefits for yourself.

Most goji berries sold around the world, by the way, are packaged as dried berries. Think of them as superfood raisins, but slightly less moist. They have somewhat of a sweet taste, but their taste is actually far more complex due to the symphony of nutrients and minerals they deliver. Here are the ways I use them:
#1) Blend into fruit smoothies
Simply take some organic fresh or frozen fruit, blend it with your favorite milk (I use almond milk), then add in a scoop of goji berries. I also like to add chia seeds, pomegranate powder, camu camu powder and some superfood powders such as Rejuvenate or Living Fuel.
#2) Sprinkle onto granola or cereal
Goji berries make any granola better! Just take a spoon or two and sprinkle them over any cereal. It instantly increases the nutritional density of the cereal while delivering minerals like zinc and phosphorus. Plus, it’s rich in vitamins C and E in their natural plant forms, not synthetic vitamin forms.
