The pomegranates were looking amazing at the farmers’ market this weekend again so I’m eating them as a snack, adding them to smoothies and to salads to add extra nutrients, taste and crunch! I always like to include a salad a day and it’s important to consume a wide variety of produce for nutrient variance, keeping it interesting and enjoying what’s in season. Pomegranates are high in vitamin C, vitamin K, fiber, polyphenols, such as ellagitannins and flavonoids and have been regarded for their strong free-radical scavenging abilities along with the reduction in many different types of inflammatory disease. They may offer benefits in the reduction on heart disease, cholesterol and blood pressure.
