Are you seeing RED this summer?

You should be.  At least on your table.  Here are a few reasons why...

  • Watermelon - According to a research study at Florida State University, watermelon may help keep "pre-hypertension" from becoming "hypertension."
  • Strawberries - Help to fight breast and cervical cancers.
  • Cranberries - Dried or fresh UNsweetened helps prevent cavity-causing bacteria from adhering to your teeth.
  • Pomegranates - High in anti-inflammatories (great for post-workout) and antioxidants; has been shown to slow increase in PSA.
  • Tomatoes - You've heard of lycopene.  To get the best punch of lycopene, cook or juice your tomatoes.  It may help with prevention of various cancers and heart disease.
  • Tart Cherries - An anti-inflammatory; can help with muscle and joint recovery after exercise.  Can also help control triglycerides (of course, that means not adding a lot of sugar to blunt the tartness.)

So, go see some Red at the Farmer's Market this weekend!
