Celebrate Eat a Cranberry Day!

November 23 is Eat a Cranberry Day. Read about how cranberries can be a part of a healthy diet.

Today, November 23, is a grand day to eat a cranberry. In fact, it’s officially Eat a Cranberry Day.

While the origins of the celebratory day aren’t certain, it’s been suggested that its purpose is to promote the health benefits of cranberries. Often referred to as a “superfruit,” cranberries offer an abundance of phytonutrients, particularly antioxidants, that can help protect against diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and other ailments.

Cranberries also contain proanthocyanidins, which can inhibit bacteria associated with urinary tract infections, gum disease, and stomach ulcers.

How can you get your cranberry on this Eat a Cranberry Day? Fresh or dried cranberries can be eaten on their own, in salads, yogourt, or pasta dishes. Frozen cranberries are perfect for smoothies and baked goods. And a glass of cranberry juice makes for a refreshing beverage any time of year.
