Thanksgiving is around the corner and many people are going to pop open canned cranberry sauce as a side dish for the turkey. What many people forget is most canned cranberry sauce is highly processed, packed with refined sugar, and full of additives. This makes it harder to eat healthy during the holidays; especially for those who cannot consume refined sugar or additives (as many people cannot).

However, there is a way to make cranberry sauce without extra, unhealthy ingredients that the family can still enjoy as the same delicious side dish. Click here to see the recipe.

In addition, cranberries are one of the many fruits that specifically target certain organ systems in the body- in this case the urinary tract system. The high level of antioxidants help fight bacteria sticking to the wall of the bladder; as such, they can help prevent urinary tract infections. They are also anti-inflammatory, which may also help rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation of the gums, and cardiovascular disease. Cranberries are rich in vitamin C, vitamin A, and other minerals like manganese and potassium.

Given these points and the benefits of cranberries, there are supplements available in capsules and powder forms for those who are interested. For busy people, supplements and powder can be helpful. Another effective form is real tart cranberry juice with no added ingredients; it can be mixed with water or added to baking

Get creative with it, as long you are taking your cranberries on purpose then you should okay! recipes.
