Day 18: Cranberry Love

day 18

Cranberry juice, cranberry sauce, and dried cranberries are some of my favorite snacks to incorporate in any given week (not just over thanksgiving!).  As long as there isn’t a ton of added sugar, they seem to work some magical properties within many of your detoxifying organs, including your kidneys and bladder.  It is believed that cranberries help to regulate the bacteria within those organs, which is why they are known to help prevent urinary tract infections and to lower blood pressure.

They are also great sources of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and fiber.  Read more about cranberries and their health benefits here.
