In fact, the bowl I had today lasted about two minutes. I loved them, so juicy and lovely, and they are now a regular on my shopping list. I also found out that they are pretty good for you. They're a great source of antioxidants, are rich in two kinds of flavoniods, which slow down the aging process (which is always a good thing in my book) and they help you sleep. Which for me, is important right now. It's three months until I welcome my little baby into this world and I know that I'm going to need all the sleep and rest I can get before then. So cherries have become my new favorite snack.
I wrote a big scene in my young adult book today and the cherries helped me along. I would normally have sweets or a bag of crisps by the side of me as I write, but today cherries did the trick. So yes, I'm converted. Before this week was out I found and loved cherries.
