Blueberries and ginger make an healthy match made in heaven. One of the most helpful antioxidants in blueberries is gallic acid, a polyphenol that has been shown to help inhibit cancer cells in many studies. Ginger has also been studied for its cancer-fighting abilities, specifically against prostate, ovarian, and gastrointestinal cancers. When you throw in goji berries, which have been shown to help regulate blood sugar, you get a sweet breakfast that does all the right things for your body.
