About the Blueberry Grilled Cheese Recipe

Dark, leafy greens aren't exactly our favorite food, so we like to hide them between other delicious ingredients. We discovered fruit-sauce grilled cheeses when recipe-hunting for Myriad Recipe Book and never turned back, and we've now experimented with everything from strawberry to peach on our sandwiches — but our favorite still remains the blueberry, spinach and bacon version. 

Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants and supports heart health, and spinach works wonders for skin, hair, digestive, and bone health. But those are just a few benefits of these powerful ingredients:
When it comes to nutrition, blueberries are a wonderful source of: 
  • Dietary Fiber: helps you feel full more quickly and prevent constipation

  • Vitamin C: helps your body grow and promotes healing; great for the skin, bones, and connective tissue

  • Vitamin B6: helps regulate blood sugar and improve heart health

And spinach is a wonderful source of: 
  • Niacin: lowers cholesterol and supports heart health

  • Zinc: improves digestion and supports healing

  • Protein: important for building bones, skin, and muscle
