Know your cranberries



Make it to the Cranberry Festival last weekend?


Cranberries are a true superfood – packed with antioxidants, these berries provide protection anywhere from tooth cavities and urinary tract infections to heart disease and cancer.


And the best news? Cranberries are grown right here in BC and available fresh right now at your local grocery store.


Of course, their acidic nature makes them a challenge to consume au naturel but try them added to smoothies or salads. A handful added to an apple pie also never goes astray!


Cranberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin A, beta carotene and Lutein. They are also said to help lower cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
