Pick your own....

"Cats" mama sent us an e-mail about picking "your own cherries" at a farm, [when what she should have done was sending us the cherries instead..hehehe..]

It didn't bother me much as we'd just "picked" some from a mall the day before.. :-)

Finished that off before I remembered to take the photo..haha,

so I made sure I took this proof before eating this next "picking"..

Some info on cherries' benefits (extract from here)

Cherries contain..

* Vitamin C
* Vitamin A
* Bioflavonoids
* Ellagic acid
* Perillyl
* anthocyanins
* Melatonin

The nutrients and compounds found in cherries give the following health benefits..

* Help fight cancer
* Aid in prevention of heart disease
* Relieve Pain of Arthritis, Gout, Headaches
* Ease the symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia Syndrome
* Provide a healthy and safe way to produce melatonin
* Improve physiological and mental functions

More info on benefits (here)

Cherries are low in calories, low in fat and contain a high percentage of water. Research has shown increasing water consumption will boost energy levels and help increase the metabolism. Many people are discovering the benefits of eating high water fruits like cherries for help in losing weight.

mmmm..I like that (help in losing weight..hehehe..)

Salam Cheqna. Thanks for coming to my blog!
Cherry picking is fun! We have done that once. In Japan, the cherries are so expensive. Susah nak makan puas2. So since cherry picking boleh makan puas-puas...kitaorang pun petik the cherries and makan terus. huhuhu...takyah basuh pun! Basuh melengahkan masa since we were given only 30minutes! haha...:)
