Benefits of Pomegranate and How to eat a Pomegranate


Hey there!

This post was inspired by the Dr Oz show.

One evening I saw my mother beating the back of a red fruit for the seeds to come out.

She was whacking on a pomegranate like I have never seen.

She said, “that is how it was done on TV… I want to eat a pomegranate”.

Later I watched the episode and understood why beating the pomegranate seemed like a good idea.

I still prefer to use a sharp knife to cut open a pomegranate and get the seeds out.

The red seeds are little jewels!

Watch the video below for the benefits of pomegranate and a kitchen demonstration on how to eat a pomegranate.
