Cherries I’m utterly in love with dried cherries. Last summer, a friend introduced me to including cherries in salads. I had previously used dried cranberries in my salads, but now they seem a bit blase in comparison to the tart and tasty cherries. Then last week, I visited a different friend who adds cherries to her oatmeal. Now I’m eating cherries daily – in salads, oatmeal or simply hand to mouth. If you live near a Trader Joe’s store, you’ll find delicious Bings in the dried fruit and nut section. Costco offers Tart Montmorency cherries in bulk bags. As cherries contain ample antioxidants and naturally anti-inflammatory properties, they’re a perfect addition to any runner’s diet.
