How do you Cranberry?

Me: have you tried cranberries before?

This was my response to DeeDee

She is a diabetic and only drinks cranberry juice

Deedee: cranberry is high in antioxidants and you said those are good though

Me: Have you tried cranberries before though?

DeeDee: aren’t they real tart…


Me: How much sugar do you think they added to make it that tasty

DeeDee: you’re not nice Dr O

Me: I didn’t add the sugar though

Your A1C is high and I think the juice is why (see what I did there… the rhyme)

DeeDee: but I love it

Me: dilute it or add plenty of ice

DeeDee: I can do that

Me: for real though, try cranberries.
I did and got the shock of my life.

My mom bought 4 bags and asked to share with me.

My taste buds were stunned.

You… you should try it …

I dare you and for perspective

DeeDee: you not nice Dr O!

Dr O: luv ya!

DeeDee: luv ya too!

Cheers to you … us….learning, re-learning, un-learning … all to live long and well

In health,
Dr. O
