FoodieGuru’s Fruit of choice this month is the exotic Pomegranate.
Why? Because it is jam packed with antioxidants. Categorized as a berry the pomegranate’s skin is thick and inedible, but there are hundreds of edible seeds within.
The thick outer skin and white skin within protects the antioxidant longer than most fruits. Even 3 days after it has been picked from a tree, it will still contain just as much antioxidant as if it has just been freshly picked.
What is the best way to consume the pomegranate?
- As a fruit/not juiced
- To suck the juice from the edible seeds within but to spit out the actual seeds
- As fresh as possible (Source from a farm instead of buying from the grocery shops)
- 1/2 a Pom twice a day
