Intensely flavorful and juicy, cherries are not a hard sell. But their long list of powerful nutrients seals the deal: they’re rich in anthocyanins (potent antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties) and boast plenty of blood-pressure-reducing potassium. They often grow in pairs, because multiple flowers bloom from a single bud and when they fruit, the cherries stay together.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/cherry_recipes_make_the_most_of_the_wonder_fruits_benefits#comments Food Blog Breana Lai Dessert Dinner Nutrition What's in season Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:25:36 +0000 Sarah Hoff 283532 at http://www.eatingwell.com
