Today, instead of posting a recipe, I'd like to tell you about pomegranate juice. I wasn't real familiar with pomegranate juice except for a one-time pomtini and some 7UP with pomegranate juice. I liked both a lot, but a few weeks ago, I started drinking POM Wonderful.
POM Wonderful juice is 100% pomegranate juice and has so many health benefits it's hard to know where to start. It outranks red wine and Concord grape juice in antioxidants and is great for cardiovascular health, decreasing arterial plaque and lowering LDLs.
I've been browsing the POM Wonderful web site and I discovered some great recipes made with either the juice or the pomegranate itself.
I've made a note to try POM Salsa, Glazed Cornish Game Hens, and the Smoothie Morning Shake.
I thought you might want to take a look for yourself. For the recipes, just go here. And know that you are doing the right thing for your health.
