A Mess-Free Way to Eat POMEGRANATE guaranteedHealthy Living
As mentioned in the previous blog (http://suzyeats.com/category/healthy-living/), pomegranate is a fruit that you should try to eat each week. It may also be a fruit that many have not yet tried.
You can find pomegranate at your local grocery store. You may also find the seeds in a container or the juice. But, as I mentioned previously, the seeds are more nutritious than the juice.
The pomegranate seeds are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber and potassium. They are great for vomiting or diarrhea to help replenish potassium. You can eat the seeds directly or add them to different meals such as hummus or salads. Another key aspect is that they are low in calories. You can even make a Pomegranate Martini (http://www.oprah.com/food/Oprahs-Pomegranate-Martini).
One complaint about pomegranate is that it is quite messy to eat. Below I have listed below a four step process to make it mess-free.
Step 1: Cut of the crown of the pomegranate, and cut it into sections where the skin is thick to minimize damage to the seeds.
Step 2: Place pomegranate in a bowl of cold water. Submerge the pomegranate in the water and gently pry it open into sections to pull the seeds out. (the seeds will sink to the bottom and the skin will go to the top of the water).
Step 3: Throw away any extra pieces of skin and skim off anything extra. Leave only the seeds in the water.
Step 4: Take seeds out of the water and place onto a paper towel to dry. You can refrigerate the seeds for 3-5 days in an airtight container and they will remain fresh.
