It's not really cherry season here but we saw cherries in the shop this week. The Little Boy hasn't tasted it yet so we decided to buy some - the price isn't that bad (almost $10/kilo). It doesn't taste that sweet but not bad at all.

Just like other berries, cherries have so many health benefits too. They are called "superfruits", fruits that contain natural compounds that have potential disease-fighting properties. The fruit contain antioxidants, betacarotene (19 times of blueberries and strawberries), vitamin C & E, and provide potassium, magnesium, iron, folate and fiber.
Emerging research suggests that cherries or the natural compounds found in cherries may help…
Reduce inflammation and ease the pain of arthritis and gout
Offer protection against cardiovascular disease and certain cancers
Reduce the risk of diabetes and insulin resistance syndrome
Aid in the treatment and possible prevention of memory loss




Life in a home with gluten-free diet, preventing Diabetes 2 and trying to be lactose-free. And a little bit fussy child. It sounds difficult and complicated but not really. It's been roughly ten years on - we have a lot of practice.
