8 Summer Superfoods You Should Be Eating


Portable, bite-sized, and fun to eat, cherries pack a potent nutritional punch. Rich in the antioxidant anthocyanin, these deliciously sweet gems help to fight inflammation and ease joint pain. Take advantage of them while you can – peak season is from May to August, so you’ll likely find deals at your local supermarket when cherries are abundant. For those of you lucky enough to live where these yummy jewels grow (looking at you California, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, and Wisconsin) hit the farmer’s market for the freshest (and likely least expensive) pick around. When the fresh variety isn’t available, hit the freezer section, pick up a bag and make my Cherry-Vanilla-Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich. Fresh or frozen, this summer favorite is sure to add some sweetness into your day.
