Even though Goji berries date back to the early days of Chinese medicine, people will not seem to stop talking about this tiny scrunched up fruit. "The sky is the limit when it comes to incorporating Goji berries in your diet," says Nutrition and Health Expert Rosanna Lee based in Toronto. Considered both a fruit and a herb, Goji berries are typically found in Asian and European countries, but sold in bulk or packages across North America. Lee says they include a long list of benefits. "Goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants," she says, though she cautions against immediately believing all of the berries' health claims. Goji berries have a natural tinge of sweetness with a very slight herb-like aftertaste. They also contain tiny seeds (which contain fibre) that add a nice texture to your meals. You can eat them raw or soak them in hot water before munching. Others prefer adding Goji berries to trail mixes, smoothies or as a garnish on cereals, salads or yogurts. Basically, Goji berries can be baked, cooked, steamed, and processed in any way after they are washed.
