Celebrate American Heart Month By Eating Red

Don't Just Wear Red, Eat It Too!

Discover the power of eating heart-healthy red foods during the first-ever National Eat Red Week, Feb. 4-10, 2008 in support of Heart Health Month.

Why? Well, studies from the University of Michigan suggest that the pigments that produce the red color in many fruits and vegetables like fresh cherries and tomatoes, are actually powerful disease-fighting antioxidants that may help reduce inflammation associated with atherosclerosis — hardening of the arteries — and reduce certain risk factors for heart disease.

I eat tomatoes every day and I eat strawberries and raspberries almost every day. I wish I could eat cherries every day, but they are not in season and are really expensive most of the time.

I like cherries too. For some reason strawberries are too tart for me (unless they're the chocolate-covered kind haha)
