Oregon Washington Blueberries | Explore Blueberries as an Ingredient

Here we gathered as health enthusiasts dove into a world of health and flavour at the Blueberry Wonder Workshop, which took place today from 11:00am to 2:30pm at in KL Wellness City in Bukit Jail. This event was a feast for the senses, offering a delightful mix of informative talks, culinary demonstrations, hands-on activities and delectable treats centred around the antioxidant-rich Oregon Washington Blueberries. 

Present at the workshop, we had Mr. Eddie Saw, a well-known representative of Total Market Solutions, who gave a thought-provoking speech to open the workshop. He illuminated the fascinating history of blueberries, from their inception to their current position as a nutritional powerhouse. 

Iman Azman, a wellness proponent and social media influencer, took the podium to give a compelling speech about the value of blueberries in our daily lives. Due to their exceptional nutritional value and adaptability, which allows them to be incorporated into virtually any dish or beverage, these tiny yet mighty berries have become a mainstay in modern diets.

Iman continued, "My young children, in particular, enjoy blueberries in their cupcakes, and as a parent, I feel more confident including fresh, high-quality, and nourishing ingredients in their preferred snacks and beverages." Chef Zie Zie added to the culinary experience of the event by showcasing the creation with a mouthwatering Blueberry Rosemary Grilled Chicken Poke Bowl. Participants had the chance to taste the fusion of flavours that blueberries bring.

Then, we were invited to take part in an interactive cooking demonstration where they made their own Blueberry Cream Cheese Mini Tarts and a cool Blueberry Colada beverage. I was so excited to get my hands on in making myself a cheese mini tart and truly enjoyed enjoyed a sumptuous lunch spread after the culinary activities! Definitely keeping the recipe very close to me for future baking plans when im home. Surprised that even at this workshop, we even had our very own certificate presentation to recognised the attendees' participation in the workshop as it came to an end. 

Blueberries, hailed as a superfood packed with antioxidants, have long been known to offer a variety of health advantages, from boosting the immune system to promoting heart health. It is one of the best options for clean, healthy food for health enthusiasts because it is low in sodium and cholesterol and high in potassium and vitamin C.

Every serving of your diet contains only the highest-quality blueberries from Oregon and Washington, which are carefully selected. Major grocery stores and supermarkets carry it. Till then, I'll be sharing you the recipe to recreate this blueberry cream cheese tart at home. Be sure to stay tuned in for that in my next post. xx
