Healthy Eating: Cranberries – The SuperDuper Fruit!


bowl of cranberries First of all, is that even how you spell ‘duper’? One thing I know, there are never enough reasons to use the word super duper.

I realize that we just published a recipe yesterday, but I always like to share a good thing when I can. (Martha Stewart and Oprah got nothin’ on us…and that goes for their personal chefs too!

We have phenomonal chefs at Green Mountain at Fox Run . And as a member of our staff , I’m blessed not only with delicious, healthy lunches everyday, I also get to sneak into the kitchen for some unofficial taste testing.

What I’ve been most recently crazy about is our Executive Chef’s newest creation, Cranberry Pesto. It is fabulous! On top of that I feel really excited about the fact that I finally have a sexy and delicious side dish to take with me to an holiday celebration. This tasty cranberry treat rocks! See for yourself.


1/2 cup Craisins

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons fresh basil

2 tablespoons fresh parsley

2 2/3 tablespoons toasted almonds

1/2 dash cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

Heat the water to a near simmer. Add the craisins. remove from heat and  hold in the fridge overnight. In a food processor combine all ingredients and puse until chunky paste is formed. Serve with a smile!

So, stop dieting, start living and eat some delicious cranberries, they’re good for you!.

Have a yummy weekend!
