Health Benefits of Cherries

My absolute favorite fruit are CHERRIES!!! It is THAT time of year when they are in season and are ripe for the picking! I could eat an entire bag, all at once,  if I really wanted to! They are so sweet and juicy, and very healthy for you! Did you know that they are full of anti-oxidants and also are an anti-inflammatory? This is great for me because I have Ulcerative Colitis! :)Cherries are great to eat on their own OR you can throw them in a smoothie (after removing the pits of course), add them to any muffins or baked goods, or have them as a snack to curb a  sweet tooth craving! They are low-calorie and high in nutrients!

 

Here are some more interesting facts that I found about cherries and how wonderful they are for you:
