What if I told you that adding THIS little Ruby-Colored Gem to your diet would boost your Anti-Oxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Levels in an Extraordinary way?
It’s true! The Pomegranate is a healthy food in its own right. Dig a little deeper and find a hidden treasure inside! The Pomegranate Seeds are not only edible, but fabulously delicious and nutritious. I was so excited to see them making their annual appearance at the market! You can usually find the seeds pre-packaged during the Fall Season. Or purchase the whole Pomegranate. Although seed removal may be a bit cumbersome; it is worth it. Do take advantage of them!
According to Livestrong.com, “The name for the pomegranate fruit is derived from Latin and literally means “seeded apple.” Only the seeds are edible and are found inside this large, hexagonal-shaped red fruit. An average pomegranate contains about 600 juicy seeds, also known as arils, which are encapsulated in white pith. The pomegranate fruit is low in calories, high in fiber, high in vitamins and high in phytochemicals that may promote heart health and help to prevent cancer.
The Arils (Pomegranate Seeds) are low in calories but high in Fiber. The average diet doesn’t contain enough dietary fiber, which can keep you satiated and help manage weight. Arils are scrumptious on top yogurt, salads, or oatmeal. They add color and fun to any dish.
