Pomegranate Juice is Wonderful
Thank you all for you great support and positive energy for the next chapter in my life! It’s much appreciated DC treated me well, and while I was sad to leave, I know I have some new memories to make!
But I didn’t leave without making use of some fun blog goodies!
At the door this week was another lovely treasure with my name on it: Pomegranate Juice from POM Wonderful.
I know Pomegranate juice was good for me, and I knew it had something to do with antioxidants. But I had no idea just how great this POM Juice could be. So I did some research. Now, let’s spill the facts:
Pomegranate juice is extremely high in antioxidants, which help fight off molecules that can damage cells in your body, called “Free Radicals.”
This is important because free radicals are EVERYWHERE. Your body produces them as part of your normal metabolism, but there are also many environmental sources: air pollution, alcohol, pesticides, sunlight, tobacco smoke, stressful lives, drugs and fried foods.
And because these free radicals damage cells, they leave you susceptible to serious diseases and illness, like cancer or heart disease or lead to smaller problems, like premature aging and good vision.
As is Pomegranate Juice! So thank you POM
Some Recipes Maybe??
Pomegranate has a tart taste, similar to cranberry juice. And of course the first thing that comes to mind is a cocktail, but lets see if we can do better….
The first thing I made was a smoothie. And you can add POM juice to any smoothie you usually make. This one had Amazing Grass, Hemp Protein Powder, Cacao, Banana, and POM juice. It was a great way to start my morning.
I also made a deliciously simple dressing with equal parts walnut oil, apple cider vinegar, and POM juice plus a dash of dijon mustard. Kind of a mixture of 2:2:2:1. It was great on mixed greens and spinach with a ton of veggies.
