Happy President’s Day!
When George Washington chopped down his father’s beloved cherry tree, he didn’t axe any old fruit tree. Cherries are not only a super fruit for baking and eating, the cherry is considered a Super Fruit due to its disease-fighting antioxidant properties.
The fruit has been linked to everything from easing the pain of gout and arthritis, to reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer, as well as helping to regulate sleep patterns.
According to Choosecherries.com, you should eat one to two servings each day to reap the health benefits of the fruit. Single serving size examples include: 1/2 cup dried , 1 cup frozen, 1 cup juice, and one ounce (or two tablespoons) juice concentrate.
Add dried cherries to pistachios, almonds and walnuts for a healthy and delicious snack.
