All of the frustration that comes along with deseeding it is worth it because there are so many delicious ways to eat a pomegranate. Yes, you spend hours trying to clean out the seeds whilst squirting juice everywhere, but nothing good ever comes easy right? Don’t be hesitant about incorporating this fruit into your diet because there are plenty of mouth-watering ways to eat a pomegranate.
One of the healthiest ways to eat a pomegranate is to incorporate it into a delicious salad. All you need is a variety of your favorite ingredients such as quinoa, feta cheese, onion, nuts or anything else your heart might desire, mix everything up and top it off with pomegranate seeds. The pomegranate adds an interesting touch of sweetness to the salad, adding on to a plethora of flavors in the mix.
When eating pizza, you don’t have to resort to the boring plain pizzas with extra cheese and pepperoni on top. For a change, try to top it off with greens, vegetables and even fruits such as pomegranate. It’s a healthy alternative to an otherwise calorie-laden mix of ingredients. Plus this way you will get to enjoy one of your favorite guilty pleasures without feeling completely guilty.
I am a very big fan of incorporating fruits into baked goods, as it adds on a little freshness and natural sweetness to the mix. This is why even thinking about cheesecake topped off with pomegranate seeds makes my mouth water. Just try it out yourself and follow this delicious recipe: greenkitchenstories.com.
I’ve only recently tried soaking oats overnight for breakfast myself and let me tell you, I am glad I did! Not only is it extremely healthy but also it’s completely delicious, especially when topped off with fruits and nuts. Personally I love the mix between pomegranate and overnight oats as the pomegranate adds a little sweetness and sourness.
Another way to enjoy this juicy fruit is by making pomegranate bruschetta. While you can make up your own recipe as you go along, I prefer to top off toasted baguettes with goat cheese, red onion, parsley and some pomegranate seeds.
Juicing is becoming a really big trend among individuals who are striving to lead a healthier lifestyle because it is an easy way to incorporate fruits and vegetable into your diet. Plus when it comes to juices, nothing is really off limits! So if you want to enjoy a refreshing pomegranate juice, just make sure to pick out the biggest pomegranates since they are the juiciest!
Of course why go through all the trouble of incorporating this fruit into other dishes, when you can just consume it raw? Personally this is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the sweet-tart flavor of pomegranate. And if you are having trouble de-seeding this fruit, try the under water or the wooden spoon tapping method and you will be able to enjoy this fruit hassle free.
It is a shame that it is such a pain in the behind to enjoy this delicious fruit. It’s juicy, flavorful and it can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. What is your favorite way to eat a pomegranate? Share in the comments!
