Who knew? Turkeys don’t like cranberries!
What a shock!
not that they like you there now.
first they came for the cranberries...
The usual Obama campaign timing problem:
Where are a lot of cranberries grown? Massachusetts.
Where is Zippy going to campaign, and be introduced by Dances with Crabs Warren? Massachusetts.
We now have a fascist First Lady with the lust and the breathtaking, dictatorial power to make or break various American business segments and to pick financial winners and losers in the private sector with a wave of her imperial wand.
The toadie media will back her up completely.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
...and the Tea Party moves to can barry.
I thought cranberries were good for you.
Wisconsin ping: Michelle Obama disses cranberries, the Wisconsin state berry
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Cranberry juice/supplements are probably the best way to prevent urinary tract infections.
We already knew that the Obamas were death culture devotees.
Michelle Obama is today’s STUCK ON STUPID award winner.
One can wish a thousand bladder infections upon her lowness.
Cranberries are delicious and good for you. Commercial cranberry juice, loaded with high fructose corn syrup, is not. It is bad for you.
Massachusetts, AND Wisconsin, plus some also in Oregon.
Time was that Mass. and Wis., one or the other, held the record among cranberry producing states for greatest annual production.
Why is there some federal agency in charge of this issue????
>> “I thought cranberries were good for you.” <<
That’s the problem: Obama is implementing UN Agenda 21, which calls for killing off 3/4 of the world’s population, and the pharmaceutical industry is not getting its job done very well now. Too many people are eating naturally, and putting the poisons out of their life.
Let’s hear from Massachusetts too...
Not the juice, if you’re drinking Ocean Spray. That’s full of corn syrup. You’re better off with dried cranberries or the powder in capsules.
“Ocean Spray Announces Campaign To Educate Public On Cranberry Health Benefits”
Created: June 8, 2012
SNIPPET: “Ocean Spray has announced the launch of The Exceptional Cranberry campaign to educate regulators, consumers and health influencers about the whole body health benefits of the cranberry, and to urge them to help make cranberry the exception in sugar policy recommendations targeted at the consumption of soda and other high sugar snack foods with little to no nutritive value.”
SNIPPET: “Cranberry health facts are as follows:
Cranberries have well documented properties in maintaining urinary tract health.”
SNIPPET: “Cranberries are rich in antioxidants and have more naturally occurring antioxidants per gram than other common fruit.
Cranberries contain proanthocyanadins (PACs) that may help keep certain bacteria from adhering to linings inside the body.
Certain compounds in cranberries may also have a positive effect on cardiovascular health and digestive health.
A growing number of new studies point to the cranberrys exceptional ability to bolster immunity.”
Do you have any evidence to support that? No fair using talking points from Michelle.
ON THE INTERNET:
Cranberries pair perfectly with turkeys just like
apple sauce with pork. These fruits break up the uric acid
in those meats, respectively which in turn, stave off gout.
Cherries/juice work well in treating gout also.
I’m thinking pork isn’t on their menu either.
She’s a moron. Cranberries are EXTREMELY healthy. Lots of vitamin C. Since when did wide load get a Home Economics or nutrition degree?
It’s not about health but control.
I always thought Cranberry’s were good for you.
The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse officially endorses drinking cranberry juice.
But ... cranberries are practically impossible to eat without some kind of sweetening.
What would you suggest as a "healthy" sweetener? As I understand it, sugar is sugar.
Sure, ever few years some new food substance has to be declared evil. In recent years the two most popular villains in the media have been declared to be high fructose corn syrup and [gasp] gluten.
But fructose was actually promoted as the "healthy" sugar, just a couple of decades ago. The truth is, it's no better and no worse than other sugars. They're all bad for your teeth, that's for sure! And so is acid. After enjoying our delicious cranberry cocktails, we should probably go straight to rinsing out our mouths -- not just to rinse away the sugar, but the acid from the cranberries as well.
To the OP:
I detest Michelle Obama as much as anybody, but I don't see any link drawn in this article between her, and an attack on cranberries!
I think the blogger is indulging in a bit of a stretch.
"Sweetened beverages for me, but none for thee."
But Obama will do okay in Oak Bluffs.
There are other ways to consume cranberries than the Ocean Spray Regular cranberry juice. They have a Light version of the juice cocktail (other companies make juices with WAY less sugar), there are dried cranberries (Craisins, made in Wisconsin), fresh cranberries in all sorts of foods, such as oatmeal.
There is a significant difference between cranberry juice and cranberry juice cocktail (Ocean Spray’s drink). Even the cocktail is loaded with Vitamin C, though.
Cranberry juice and even the cocktail have helped with many infections. Always kept it in stock.
yeast infections. you’d wonder why she doesn’t like it.
Hear that New Jersey cranberry growers? Obama is coming for your livelihood next.
Just the cranberry industry? Orange juice is also full of sugar (in the form of ‘evil’ fructose). Goodbye Florida!
Funny — I was just looking at a recipe for “Cranberry Chicken” for my crock pot (oven is being replaced) — This article just convinced me that THAT’s what DH is going to have for dinner tomorrow night!!
There’s also Brisket With Cranberry Gravy, Cranberry Meatballs, Cranberry-Mustard Pork Loin, Cranberry Pot Roast (now THIS one is delicious!!).
Think I’ll stock up on cranberries tomorrow!!
Moochelle 0Bama is a witch!!!
Bump to your post no. 38.
I drink “no sugar added” Cranberry juice and if I drink regular cranberry juice I water it down — 1 part juice to 3 parts water.
I also take cranberry supplements.
Think we need to check into some of the fruit/food industries in California. How about grapes, or maybe nuts, avocados, or any other food Nancy’s state grows.
Maybe Dole is making its pineapple juices too sweet...
Odd how the food nazi isn’t mentioning sweetened citrus juices/foods.
Boil cranberries and mix them with fresh cherries in season and Splenda. This makes a great desert topping, with zero sugar.
“Who knew? Turkeys dont like cranberries!”
I bet they’re not crazy about sweet potatoes or pumpkin pie, either.
Do I have evidence that there’s high fructose corn syrup in Ocean Spray and most commercial brands? Ummm....look on the label, you’ll see it listed. As for information about hfcs and how bad it is, if you don’t want to believe me, look it up -
Try the brand Apple & Eve, which is a cranberry-apple blend with no added sugars. The natural sugar content of the apple modifies the cranberry’s tartness.
You’re kidding, right? Cranberries are completely unpalatable without LOADS of sugar or artificial sweetener.
Dried cranberries have high sugar or sweetener too.
