Tart cherries make an appearance throughout a new book on some of the best foods for healthier living by nutrition consultant David Grotto, RD. Tart cherries appear on several lists in his book, including best foods for sleep, best pain-fighting foods, best foods for muscle recovery, and best fruits overall.
"More and more, people are searching for delicious, natural foods that offer functional benefits, and tart cherries rise to the top in my book," said Grotto, who also wrote the acclaimed book "101 Foods That Could Save Your Life," which is now out in 18 different languages. "Science continues to support the many health benefits of tart cherries, such as helping regulate natural sleep patterns, which is especially important as the CDC now considers lack of sleep a 'public health epidemic.'"
The book, "The Best Things You Can Eat: For Everything from Aches to Zzzz" came out yesterday.
