Kripalu Recipe: Cranberry Relish

Cranberries are nutrient-dense superstars that deserve more time in the spotlight than their annual holiday appearances. They help prevent the adhesion of bacteria associated with urinary tract infections; inhibit bacteria linked to gum disease and stomach ulcers; and contain vitamin C, antioxidants, and other phytonutrients that help protect your body against heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. Enjoy this Kripalu Recipe in good health!
