Cranberries are a very nourishing fruit that we tend only to consider during the holidays. While fresh berries are in season this time of year, don’t dismiss there frozen counterparts which are available all year long. The skin of the cranberry houses powerful antioxidants that help combat free radicals and boost the immune system. If cranberry juice is something you enjoy, try this cranberry infused water instead, as it offers all the delicious and healthful benefits of cranberries without all the added sugar of juices and concentrates. Cranberries are mostly carbohydrates and fiber which make them a great source of energy, and they can help regulate digestion and blood sugars. They are also a powerhouse of essential vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, E, and K, manganese, and copper. Incorporating fresh (or frozen) cranberries into your diet can be simple, delicious and fun. Try some of these recipes over the holidays or any time of year and don’t forget to check out our nourishing cranberry sauce recipe that is sure to be a hit on your holiday table.
