National Cherry Day is celebrated on July 16, making it the perfect summertime celebration. Cherries range from sweet to tart, they come in shades ranging from red to yellow, and you can create a wide variety of dishes, desserts, and drinks with them. We can’t blame George Washington for allegedly chopping down that cherry tree. Today, the U.S. cherry industry produces more than 650 million pounds of tart and sweet cherries each year.
At Private Home Health Care, we love cherries! Not only are they juicy and delicious, but they are packed with nutrients! Cherries are a great source of fiber, Vitamin C, and potassium. Because they are a berry, all cherries are high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which may reduce chronic disease risk and promote overall health! Cheers to cherries!
