Concord Grapes

Concord Grape PieGrapes have become my latest post-workout snack because they are water-packed and also help to curb my hunger when I come out of the yoga studio with serious munchies.

But don’t limit grapes to snack food – you can also make surprising, gorgeous desserts with them.

Concord grapes have a short season, but their flavor is unique and honey-kissed. Search them out at a local farmer’s market.When it comes to health, resveratrol — present in grapes, peanuts, berries and red wine — has been all the buzz since scientists cited it as one of the most powerful antioxidants.

Many recent animal studies have found that resveratrol may work as a fat fighter, cancer fighter and may even protect against radiation exposure, purportedly a result of its strong antioxidant powers. And since I’m not a fan of dietary supplements, I prefer to go the cooking route.
