Hi folks,


Hurry! - Pomegranates are still in season ! Eat a wide variety of veggies, fruit, nuts & seeds, beans and whole grains. But it's good to include superfoods like pomegranates daily.


They will be in season again in February.


Research is showing that pomegranates improve blood flow in heart patients, while the control group (randomized, double blind) got worse. American Journal of Cardiology, Dr. Dean Ornish.

Research suggests that pomegranates cut the risk of cancer.

My wife and I buy about 20+ pomegranates, and take out the arils (the seeds with the juice pocket) and freeze them. My wife likes to put a tablespoon or so on her breakfast or salad. I like to put a tablespoon or so in my veggie smoothies. This way, it lasts all year.


Best regards, EngineerGuy (Stacy)
