Pomegranate Love.

Delicious!



I'm shamelessly plugging the simple but lovely red fruit ... the pomegranate. Returning from a afternoon ride, I enjoyed the edible seeds on yoghurt. And there's more to the robust red fruit. I checked it out...

Getting to the edible red juicy arils (seed casings) is a chore. Just wear something that you don't mind having pomegranate juice splatter on. You'll have to rip into it separating the seeds from the peel. Time consuming but well worth it.

A good source of fibre, Vitamin C, potassium and especially high in polyphenols, an antioxidant. A good weapon in the risk of cancer and heart disease. In fact, it has higher antioxidant to beat out green tea & red wine. It won't be a reason to stop drinking red wine!


Cheers to the pomegranate!
