Simple pomegranate kitchen hack

Pomegranate season is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier since it’s definitely one of my favourite fruits! It’s also a powerhouse of nutrition – so not a bad favourite fruit to have!

However, I used to hate eating them because it was so hard to get the seeds out and would always make such a HUGE mess! Buying the seed on their own can be overly expensive. Until I discovered this kitchen hack…

(Shameless plug: subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos like this)

Here are the top 3 reasons I love pomegranates so much (on top of them tasting amazing):

  1. Powerful antioxidant: antioxidants protect your cells and help ward off disease and inflammation. There are actually three different types of polyphenol antioxidants in pomegranates: tannins, anthocyanins and ellagic acid.
  2. Protect your heart: pomegranates can improve blood flow to the heart, support healthy blood pressure levels and prevent damage to your artery walls.
  3. Improve memory: I need all the help I can with this… A study found that pomegranate juice can significantly improve memory and brain function by increasing oxygen-rich blood to the regions of the brain needed during such tasks.

I encourage you to go out and get yourself a pomegranate so you can smash it repeatedly. It’s actually very therapeutic at the same time. Just don’t wear a white shirt while you’re doing this 😉

Enjoy!
