Like "exactly Gabby My strategies are to try to optimize my diet. As you say. cranberries are a good food with lots of advantages. We can find better ways to prepare and use them without the downside. In American we have pretty much lost the art of preparing healthy delicious foods and that is what I think we have to relearn. Granted, I had an advantage since I was trained to cook by a 5 star gourmet shef when I was a teen. What i was taught was all wrong for healthy eating but at least i had skills to be able to figure out how to take what is healthy and make it taste good without turning it into something unhealthy. "
