Pomegranate Power

Remember as a kid sitting for hours with a Pomegranate and a needle?

35 years it took me to recover from the torture of getting every single juicy seed out of this fruit. It just all seemed like life was way to short.

Now I get to have my revenge and have figured a way to de-seed this wonder fruit in minutes and believe me it is well worth it.

Super sweet and juicy and more importantly packed with vitamin A, C and E, iron and antioxidants. It’s also a good source of fibre.

It has also been claimed that they can be effective against high blood pressure, heart disease, inflammation and some cancers. 

More importantly as a runner they are said to help with muscle recovery after exercise due to the high amounts of antioxidants and phytochemicals that can reduce inflammation. 

With all these benefits you would be bonkers not to give them a go and better still pop along to Aldi and they are on offer right now for 59p for 3.

I mix half a Pomegranate seeds into my morning oats, giving natural sweetness but packing my brekkie with everything good for me.
