Cranberry Apple Ginger Juice

By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist

Cranberries are one of my favorite fall foods.  Tart and naturally low in sugars they are a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber.   Fresh, raw cranberries are a far cry from their dried counterparts with only 4 grams of natural sugar and 46 calories per one cup compared with 124 grams of sugar and 520 calories in 1 cup of dried cranberries!  Dried varieties may also have added sulfites or other ingredients.

Cranberries are rich in phytonutrients like antioxidants beyond just vitamin C, including anthocyanin.  We’ve all heard about the benefits of cranberry juice in helping to ease urinary tract issues, but they also have potent cancer fighting properties.  According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, including cranberries in your diet may help lower your risk of certain types of cancers including; mouth, esophagus, lung, and stomach cancers.
