Put a Cranberry on Your Plate Today

No holiday meal is complete without cranberry sauce, but with all the benefits found in this little red fruit, we should be eating it year round!

Low Calorie and Low Sugar

At around 50 calories and only 4 grams of sugar, a cup of raw cranberries is a great way to add color and nutrition to your recipes.

Antioxidants

Cranberries are higher in antioxidants than other fruits and berries. Antioxidants are molecules that fight damage from free radicals, the unstable molecules that can harm cellular structures. Free radicals may play a role in serious illnesses like heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's disease. Cranberries are particularly high in an antioxidant called proanthocyanidins (PACs). PACs reduce the ability for bacteria to stick to the wall of the urinary tract and thus reduce chances of developing urinary tract infections. 

Vitamin C

Cranberries are a great source of vitamin C, which can help keep you healthy year round! One cup of cranberries has 22% of the recommended daily value of vitamin c. Vitamin C well known for its role in supporting a healthy immune system. Research shows it is necessary for the growth and repair of all body tissue. The body cannot make vitamin C, it must come from food

Fiber

Cranberries are packed with fiber which is great for overall gut health. One cup has about 4.6 grams of fiber. High-fiber diets can help with gut health, lower blood cholesterol, and glucose levels. 

Incorporate Cranberries In Your Diet

  • Give your oatmeal, cereal, trail mix and granola a colorful kick with dried cranberries
  • Frozen cranberries in place of ice cubes, add extra flavor and nutrition to your protein smoothie
  • Squeeze a little cranberry juice into your day – 100% pure cranberry juice can be bitter, so try mixing it with apple juice or adding your favorite zero calorie sweetener. 
  • Muffins, breads, pies and scones are even better with a tart zip from fresh cranberries
  • Sprinkle dried cranberries on your salad – we love spinach, green apple, dried cranberries and steak/turkey/chicken mixed with a vinaigrette
