This raw-food treat combines top anti-inflammatory agents, including tart cherries and omega-3-laden walnuts. A daily bite or two of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao) is a worthy anti-inflammatory treat. 

Directions
  1. Finely chop dried cherries, dates, and walnuts and combine in a large mixing bowl. Add orange juice, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and coconut. Mix together with hands, working into a sticky mass. Mixture should hold together; if necessary, add another chopped date or a little more juice.
  2. With clean, slightly wet hands, roll mixture into walnut-shell-size balls. Roll in excess shredded coconut, if desired. Gently place into an airtight container and refrigerate. They will become firmer as they cool.
