Cherries!

The Weight Loss Word of the Day is CHERRIES! Prevention Magazine is reporting that cherries are a fantastic cancer fighter. They say that cherries are loaded with perillyl alcohol and quercetin, both of which are apparently potent anti-cancer agents. Cherries taste good, too.

Now we're not talking about those cherries you get in a jar. No, we're talking about fresh cherries. They're in season now so get to your local supermarket and stock up. A half-cup a day is the recommended amount. Basically just a handful.

A friend of mine actually planted a few pits in a planter and has a couple of little trees growing now. Is that cool or what?

So enjoy cherries today. It's a fruit that's good for you!

I love me some cherries. Since they have been in season, I have been munching them every day. Bing cherries are my favorite, but Rainier are good too.

I bought some cherries just the other day. They may be in season, but they sure seem expensive to me.
