MISSION, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- (Family Features) If you're looking for ways to feel better and live healthier, you might want to pay attention to what's in your kitchen.
"More and more, people are searching for delicious, natural foods that offer functional benefits, and tart cherries rise to the top in my book," said David Grotto, RD. "Science continues to support the many health benefits of tart cherries such as helping regulate natural sleep patterns, which is especially important as the CDC now considers lack of sleep a 'public health epidemic.'"
A new book from Grotto, "The Best Things You Can Eat" (Da Capo Press, January 2013), reveals some of the best foods for healthier living, including tart cherries. Recognized for their powerful nutrient profile and functional properties, tart cherries appear several times in Grotto's book, including best foods for sleep, as well as best pain-fighting foods, best foods for muscle recovery, and best fruits overall.
Available year-round in dried, frozen and juice forms, tart cherries are a versatile ingredient to include as part of any diet. Here are some delicous ways you can enjoy the best of eating red:
- Greens and Reds: Toss grilled salmon, dried cherries and a dash of turmeric with salad greens for heightened flavor and pain-fighting nutrients.
- Runner's Red Relief: Blend low-fat chocolate milk, kefir or plain yogurt and frozen cherries for a quick boost pre- or post-workout beverage.
- Spiced Red Snack Mix: Try an easy, do-it-yourself trail mix using dried cherries, ginger, cinnamon, almonds, pistachios and whole-grain cereal.
- Berry Cherry Breakfast: Swap typical berries for dried tart cherries to top cereal, oatmeal, yogurt or pancakes.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
