A mix of good ideas

I would describe today's look as feminine with a touch of the 60's, I suppose. I love looking sophisticated yet casual, yet retro. I like to dress according to my mood, especially during the winter months. During this time of year I mostly wear layers with touches of color.. my hair would normally be worn in a large twist bun. My motto in terms of clothing: wear what makes you comfortable, be different from everyone else. I enjoy searching for vintage items and one-of-a-kind pieces. I am a sucker for matching bargain with expensive or designer pieces. I live for Christmas/black Friday sales. My religion is to wear much jewelry as possible (big-chunky rings, bracelets, and necklaces are my staple pieces)

The benefits of pomegranate

Talking about a healthy snack. Pomegranate is known as a healing food. With embedded jewel-like seeds packed with powerful antioxidants and vitamins, this ruby-red fruit has shown to be a cure-all for just about any malfunction the body produce. The health benefits are endless to include helping with stomach upsets, hemorrhoids, conjunctivitis, osteoarthritis, lowers blood pressure, stimulates the immune system, wards off the flu, reduces inflammation, reduces risk of heart disease, and lowers cholesterol. The peel is said to be good for the heart and blood vessels; the white membrane is good for stopping diarrhea and good for wounds and ulcers of the mouth and throat. The fruit also strengthens the brain and cleanses the body and blood from toxins
Pomegranate juice packs a high antioxidant potency punch and protects against heart attack and stroke. Pomegranate at low dosages is also good for diabetics do to the natural sugar content
The pomegranate is an intricate fruit that contains a maze of these tiny seeds filled with a tangy tasty juice inside and a bark-like, inedible flesh. There many ways you can discharge those tiny juice packets, but here's an easy way to get to all those nutritious, sweet, and juicy seeds
- Cut off the crown you’ll know what I'm talking about
- Score and slice the rind all around, don’t cut all the way through
- Soak the pomegranate face down in cold water for about 12 minutes
- While the pomegranate is still in the bowl of water, break apart the scored rinds, and remove the seeds from the flesh
- Remove the rind and membrane from the bowl with a spoon
- Drain the seeds free from water then pat dry with a paper towel
To get the most out of an organic pomegranate, some like to eat the seeds while some like to suck the juice out and spit out the seeds (a personal choice I like)
