Nourishment Notes

Ricotta Cheese

Not only is ricotta cheese easy to swallow, a ½ cup serving contains 14g of protein and 1/3 of an adult's daily calcium needs.


Cherries are a great source of antioxidants, including anthocyanins and quercetin. Anthocyanins may help decrease the risk for certain cancers and lower inflammation within the body. Quercetin helps protect DNA and the heart.
