What’s in Season?

By Registered Dietitian Rachel Trumble Cranberry Crush! Cranberries are a favorite part of holiday celebrations. This beautiful deep-red healthful food is high in nutrients and antioxidants like proanthocyanidins that can help prevent a range of diseases. Cranberries are very low in calories and high in vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin K. They can be refrigerated for up to two months and frozen for later use to throw in a delicious and nutritious fruit smoothie. Cranberries should be firm to the touch and unwrinkled. Add cranberries to your oatmeal or whole-grain cereal, or make a homemade trail mix with unsalted nuts, seeds and dried cranberries. So simply delicious.
