9. Tart Cherries
Tart-cherry juice is a common recovery drink. But you can eat tart cherries, too—the whole cherry is not as tart as the juice. Reach for these as a snack or after a long run or bike ride.
Why They’re Good for You: Tart cherries are a super anti-inflammation food.
What to Look For: Tart cherries are yellowish, with a red cheek (not deep red like the common sweet cherry); avoid brown flecks.Back to top
