Happy National Cherry Day

We celebrated National Trail Mix Day yesterday and today I’m back with another holiday! Happy National Cherry Day!!! In honor of the day here is a Paleo Cherry Crumble recipe that is both easy to make and healthy! I’m participating in Kasey’s Powermeal a Week Challenge a day early but will be linking up tomorrow!

Before we get into the recipe let’s talk cherries for a minute! Why are cherries so good for us?

  • Cherries are filled with antioxidants
  • They have anti-inflammatory benefits
  • They are a good source of fiber
  • They aid in heart health
  • They are a great source of beta carotene
  • They can be a sleep aid, memory aid, and cancer aid
