Red, White, and Blue...berries: Top Ways to Add Them To Your Diet!

Summer's here, and with it comes the season of BBQs, fireworks, and outdoor get-togethers. But who says healthy eating can't be festive too?  This week on Eat Clean Bro, we're getting you ready for the red, white, and blue with a delicious trio of berries – all packed with nutrients to keep your gains on track!

The Berry Best for Your Diet:

Strawberries: These juicy gems are low in calories and high in vitamin C and fiber. Perfect for tossing in a pre-workout smoothie or adding a touch of sweetness to your protein oats.

Blueberries: Bursting with antioxidants, blueberries are a brain-boosting addition to your diet. Sprinkle them on your Greek yogurt for a post-workout snack or whip up a refreshing protein smoothie with a handful of these blue beauties.

Raspberries: Don't underestimate these little guys! Packed with vitamins and minerals, raspberries add a touch of tartness to yogurt parfaits or protein waffles.

Bananas: Our Chocolate Banana Protein Pancakes wouldn't be the same without them. Bananas are a natural source of potassium and fiber, making them a perfect fit for the Eat Clean Bro lifestyle.

Berrylicious Breakfast:

Speaking of breakfast our Chocolate Banana Protein Pancakes are protein-packed and the perfect way to fuel your morning with a delicious and nutritious twist.

Fresh Fruits: Top your cooked pancakes with a mix of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt or whipped cream for extra protein and creaminess.

Folded Fruit: Gently fold chopped strawberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries into your pancake batter before cooking. This will distribute the berries throughout your pancakes for a burst of flavor in every bite. Be careful not to overmix, as this can cause the berries to burst.

Berry Compote: Make a quick and easy compote by simmering fresh or frozen berries with a splash of water, lemon juice, and a touch of honey or maple syrup. Spoon the warm compote over your pancakes for a delightful topping.

Whipped Berry Cream:  Fold some mashed berries into whipped cream for a light and fluffy topping.

Bonus Tip:

Looking to add in extra protein to your pancakes? 


Match Your Flavor: Consider the flavor of your protein powder when choosing your pancake mix. Vanilla protein powder goes great with classic pancake mix, while chocolate or strawberry protein powder can complement flavored pancake mixes.

Mix it Up: Don't just dump the powder in! Add the protein powder to your dry ingredients before whisking the wet ingredients. This helps ensure a smooth batter without lumps.


No matter how you choose to add them, berries are a delicious and nutritious way to elevate your pancakes. Ready to fuel your summer with delicious and nutritious meals? Head over to the Eat Clean Bro website to explore our menu and start building your perfect meal plan today!
