During the holiday season, inflammation-promoting scenarios abound, from sugary treats to stressful family gatherings.
And this cranberry relish may be the ultimate inflammation-fighting food.
Cranberries are filled with antioxidants. Oranges are loaded with vitamin C, a nutrient that can help normalize blood pressure and levels of cortisol, AKA the stress hormone. Meanwhile, cinnamon contains antioxidants and flavonoid compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties, and has specifically been found to reduce responses to stress.
Basically, you should make this before, during, and after the holidays.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Traditional cranberry sauce is usually filled with sugar. This is a healthier, lighter version that still has yummy cranberry-orange-cinnamon flavor but is served cold, which means you can add it to wraps, salads, or use it as a delicious topping for grilled chicken or fish.
