Cherries contain several nutrients and phytochemicals called polyphenols, and dark cherries are a good source of melatonin -- similar to the hormone that increases in your body, as you get sleepy. In fact, nibbling on a small bowlful of cherries before bedtime just might help you sleep better. And restful sleep is an important part of a weight loss program.

Fresh cherries should be red in color without any blemishes, cracks in the skin or evidence of mold. Keep the in the refrigerator until you're ready to use them. You also might be lucky enough to find frozen cherries at your local grocery store.

The easiest way to enjoy sweet cherries is to rinse them and eat them one by one, or try any of these ideas:

Frozen cherries can be thawed served with Greek yogurt or a frozen tart yogurt. 

Dried cherries can be used just like raisins -- add them to oatmeal or granola, or make a healthy fresh garden salad greens, dried cherries and a little goat cheese.

Add cherries to a smoothie with bananas, strawberries or other fruits.
