I'm happy to announce the Veggie/ Fruit A Month event here in Taste Of Pearl City. First I would like to thank Priya of Mahro Rajasthan's Recipes who gave me this opportunity to host her event. This event is started by Priya, according to the event, every month any one fruit or vegetable will be chosen as a star ingredient to prepare recipes using that. This month the featured fruit is Cherry. Cherries are found in abundant in markets during summer particularly in European countries.
The majority of eating cherries are derived from Prunus avium( sometimes called the sweet cherry) or Prunus cerasus ( the sour cherry). Cherry enriched diet lowers your body fat especially the belly fat. It lowers the risk of all heart related disease. In general cherries are known to lower the cholestrol level in your body.
Cherries also reduce the inflammation, to read more about cherries click here and here.
