A healthy and balanced diet is essential for your body to function at its best. It’s even more important to get the right balance of nutrients and vitamins if you’re training.
Cherries are an often overlooked fruit. They come in a variety of forms: fresh, dried and glazed, but fresh Montmorency tart cherries have a number of benefits for your body.
The little red fruity orbs are jam packed full of anthocyanins which have been linked to reducing cholesterol, inflammation and body fat.
It’s really easy to introduce a handful of cherries into your daily diet, either by eating them raw, or by including them in a tasty recipe, like this Cherry Chocolate Recovery Drink.
