Give Thanks To The Cranberry
Cranberries pop up often as a garnish in martinis or in your favorite punch, but this festive winter fruit does much more that just add color. Cranberries help fight cancer, improve cholesterol levels, aid urinary infections, even combat cavities. It’s time to crank up your use of cranberries!
Cranberries add color and tartness to baking, salads, sandwiches, and any holiday meal. Who can go without cranberry sauce at Christmas? This tangy treat is not only naturally low in fat but also bursting with powerful nutrients. One cup of whole fresh berries has 81 grams of potassium, 12.6 milligrams of vitamin C, and 34 micrograms of beta carotene - for just 44 calories.
This fruit is rich in antioxidants, which are known to provide certain health benefits to the cardiovascular system and immune system. Fresh cranberries, at their peak October through December, can be stored in your fridge for several months. Stock up on liquid, canned, dried, fresh, or frozen cranberries today.
