Cherries reduce inflammation, have been shown to support brain function, and may even reduce soreness after a long workout at the gym. Add some cacao powder, which fights cardiovascular disease; walnuts, which are full of healthy fats; banana, which delivers the potassium your body craves; collard greens, which replace much needed iron, calcium, magnesium, and a little bit of protein, and you’ve got an amazing (and amazingly tasty) pre or post workout snack.
If you love cherries, give the Watermelon Cherry Mint Smoothie try.
