Learning to Incorporate Cherries into Your Cooking

Whether you like the taste of cherries or not, more and more studies point to their health benefits.

They’re touted as both an anti-inflammatory and a sleep aid.

One of their biggest proponents is Michelle White, the founder of Michelle’s Miracle Tart Cherry Concentrate.

She’s written a cookbook on how to incorporate cherries into your diet, and has been giving cooking demonstrations all week long.

Today, she made a kale salad with dried cherries, feta, red onions and carrots topped off with a cherry vinaigrette.

“I’ve been down here all week doing some demos, showing people how easy it is to use cherries. But what I’m really discovering is that a lot of people didn’t know they actually liked kale, so I’m thinking that’s cool thing. Who knew cherries could turn even kale around?” 

White says people should commit to incorporating cherries into their diet for 3 to 6 weeks, and they’ll see the results.
