It’s Pomegranate season!
Pomegranate is a beautiful and delicious fruit that has many uses and health benefits. Pomegranates are unusually used in baking, cooking, juice blends, garnishes, and smoothies. They are a good source of vitamins, especially vitamin A, C, and E, as well as folic acid and also contain antioxidant, antiviral, and antitumor properties.
Healthy eating during the holidays can sometimes be a challenge with the many parties and festivities happening all in a short period of time. The majority of foods at these events can be loaded with saturated fat, salt, sugar and excess calories. However, this doesn’t have to be the case when hosting your own holiday event and you don’t have to sacrifice flavor in the name of health.
Coconut oil has been all the craze for the past few years. Not too long ago, it would have been quite a task to track down a bottle of this trendy oil, but now coconut oil is found in most supermarkets and health food stores. Coconut oil is well-known as a moisturizing treatment for hair and skin, and has been rumored to lower risk of cardiovascular disease, and help with weight loss.
Keep gratitude in mind this holiday season. Remember all you are thankful for. Savor each
bite of food and enjoy each moment spent with your loved ones. And always remember to
think of your accomplishments as well as who helped you achieve them. Happy Holidays!
