Blueberry pie is bona fide health food

Care for a blueberry?
This month, thanks to the work by Yale University's Griffin Prevention Research Center, thousands of stores will be posting numbers about the nutrition information of your food choices. According to National Geographic Magazine, "the Overall Nutritional Quality Index scores foods from 1-100, based on nutrients, vitamins, sugar and salt as well as impact on blood pressure and other health concerns."

Pie makers? Blueberries scored 100. And apples? 96. Clearly, pie is health food. Get bakin'.
