Lingonberries don't have that much nutrition, they just taste good with some foods like meat, or as a pink sort of sweet and tart porridge, that's why they are eaten in the north. I wouldn't bother with them unless they grow where you live.

Wild blueberries are called bilberries, I eat them everyday since they grow here, I have a freezer full of them, like almost everyone in Scandinavia, but I have to say that I don't really see how they would be especially healthy, I know about ORAC etc. but people have been eating them here for ages with no special effect to their health.

What about lingonberries? Native to the Scandinavian region, they're less tart than cranberries.

Best ones are actually wild blueberries, you know the kind that makes a mess in a good way :)

The darker the better and I recently read that wild blue berries, the smaller ones that are blue through and through and not just on the outside like those really fat ones, are much higher in polyphenols.

"For example, the highest ratings per 100 grams among fruits go mostly to berries: acai, chokeberries, elderberries, cranberries, wild blueberries, black currants, blackberries and raspberries"

Blueberries are probably the highest in antioxidants, but all berries are good. Don't limit yourself and buy only organic. Conventionally grown tend to be sprayed with a lot of pesticides.

My favorite types right now are sea buckthorn, goji, and elderberries. I like to change it up, though. I don't think there's such thing as one perfect food

Whatever happens to be in season. Right now, I'm a big fan of pomegranates.
