A mythological and beautiful fruit, pomegranates might be a pain to enjoy, but the effort is worth it. These ruby-seed filled beauties are super high in antioxidants and studies have shown drinking pomegranate juice may reduce the risk of hardening arteries. A plus after eating all the fatty “holiday” foods.

Pomegranate seeds are very versatile. For breakfast, you can sprinkle them on cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt. For lunch, you can put them on a salad. Paired with goat cheese and pine nuts, they are delicious.  For dinner, pomegranate seeds also make a delicious relish for chicken, pork, and beef.
