Blueberries, Blackberries, and Granny Smith Apples

Breakfast today was a combination of the aforementioned) Atkins Chocolate Royale low carb shake (it doesn't taste like pressed wood, trust me on this), blueberries, blackberries, and a granny smith apple.

I never get tired of granny smith apples, nor do I get tired of blackberries (blueberries, despite their fantastic health benefit profile, i.e. antioxidants can get just a little tiring if eaten every day, just my personal taste). I can consume both on a consistent basis and in prodigious amounts. Reputedly, granny smiths are also a fruit with a good glycemic index value.

What I don't like, however, is the cost of blackberries. Let's be honest, they're hideously expensive and you have to wonder how most family budget shoppers can buy them regularly. I like them enough to stomach the cost...except when I buy them and two days later find mold on them.

I usually take a good look at my fruit before I toss it into the cart. But, invariably, no matter how good the berries look in the store, they seem to "time out" within two days of entering my fridge. Makes you wonder how much on the edge some of this produce really is.
