National Blueberry Pie Day – #doodlewashaday

Today I offer you a slice of blueberry pie in honor of this national holiday.  Blueberries are considered one of the world’s healthiest foods.  Each is an amazing source of antioxidants, vitamin K, vitamin C, and fiber, and blueberries promote heart and brain health among other good things.

An interesting fact is that blueberry pie is the official dessert of the state of Maine, which makes sense because their official fruit is a blueberry.  Who knew states have official desserts?  Curiously I googled Ohio’s official state dessert, but alas we do not seem to have one.  We are also slighted because our official state fruit is a tomato.  What? A tomato?  Oh well, our farmers grow pretty awesome tomatoes here in the summer, but I don’t think tomato pie sounds very appealing for dessert.  Do you want that with or without whipped cream?  HA!  Happy National Blueberry Pie Day!
