Life's a bowl of...
CHERRIES! I love them. I will admit upfront the Cherry Marketing Institute is behind this!
Oh, so what—cherries are the bomb.
Yet—you people are slacking…the top fruits people eat are oranges, bananas, apples, and watermelon.
Still, only one in five of you are getting the 1-2 cups of fruit a day the national nannies recommend.
People have…wait for it…”Fruit Fatigue,” says Elizabeth Ward, MS, RD, author of MyPlate for Moms, How to Feed Yourself and Your Family Better.Tart cherries—not the gooey pie kind--are a good way to add “red.”
Yet people say they throw fruit out too much, it costs too much, it’s too hard to prepare, blah blah. Yes—I have said all this. Esp the cost.
Cherries have antioxidants—the good stuff.

Yum—want some right now. What do I have in there? Bananas.
Well, I like those, too.
