Hello again! There’s no better time of the year to be taking lots of Vitamin C than right now!
The cold weather has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere along with cold and flus – oh no!! Who wants to spend a week in bed with a runny nose and aches and pains all over? Not me! ????
This simple recipe will help you to take a good dose of Vitamin C! Plus, it offers lots of other benefits that Mother Nature brings to us in her greenest packaging- the fruits themselves! And of course, eating seasonal fruits is even better, since that’s when all of their health properties are at peak potential!
As you can see in the photo above of our FRUITWALL fruit “bowl,” this recipe only uses two ingredients.
- 4 pomegranates
- 8 oranges
As I was saying, it’s best to eat them while they’re in season, from November to May. They have lots of beneficial properties: they are antioxidants, cleansers, disinfectants, and stimulate the immune system. They have high Vitamin C content, which helps our immune system to fight off colds and flus. But an orange has even more benefits! They are rich in Vitamins A, B, and E and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium that also help to keep our immune system strong.
Pomegranates are in season throughout autumn. They contain Vitamins C and E and minerals like potassium. Like I mentioned, Vitamin C is great for keeping up our defenses during this time of year!
Plus, they are a low-calorie food, which we think is pretty good news.
The recipe is very simple. Peel the pomegranates, place the seeds in a bowl, and pour orange juice over them. Easy, right? It can be a simple and fantastic dessert or breakfast, that adults and children alike will love.
If you don’t like dealing with all the little bits, you can put the pomegranate seeds in a blender and then strain the liquid after for an even smoother final result. When I eat fruit, I like to avoid throwing away any parts, so I’ll even add what’s left in the juicer back into the juice, which by the way is a great source of fiber!
And I don’t want to say goodbye without a quick reminder that we should all try our best to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day to maintain a healthy diet!
Enjoy your meal!
