Berry Benefits

Perhaps you only use cranberries around the holidays, but you'd be wise to keep them on the menu all year long.  Research shows that they may increase your level of HDL cholesterol, the good kind that prevents plaque from building up in your arteries.  They're also packed with flavonoids-antioxidants thought to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.  Give your ticker a treat by adding dried cranberries to everything from salad and cereal to trail mix and rice dishes.
