Cherries are in season! These red beauties keep well in the refrigerator and travel well. A one-cup serving of cherries gives you 90 calories and 3 grams of fiber as well as anthocyanin, a powerful anti-oxidant linked with cancer and heart disease reduction. Anthocyanin in cherries also helps reduce inflammation. Cherries have a low glycemic index value compared to other fruit. Use cherries as a healthy snack, chopped into salads or cooked into a sauce for beef or pork.
