I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again – pomegranate seeds are the bees knees!👌🏻 I like to call them ‘mother nature’s skittles’ – once used as a symbol of hope and abundance in many cultures, incorporated into Persian wedding ceremonies to symbolise a joyous future and eaten by Babylonian soldiers prior to battle! 💪🏻 Aside from the fact they’re an excellent source of vitamin C, K, folate, potassium and fibre, they even house plant protein (3g in 1 cup).🌱
If you haven’t tried pomegranate seeds yet, this is me urging you to give them a try! 👍🏻 Eat the seeds whole rather than drink the juice though – the juice is filled with fructose (natural fruit sugar) which can send you blood sugar levels sky high if there’s no fibre present (which helps to slow digestion). I like to throw the seeds into fresh salads for a burst of sweetness and antioxidants, but they also work really well as breakfast or cake or muffin toppings too.
Whichever way you choose to try them, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 💗✌
