More About This Subject:

The season for fresh pomegranates is from September January.

There are several known health benefits from consuming pomegranate seeds and drinking the juice. First, they are an anti-cancer food: Studies in mice show that pomegranate juice may inhibit the development of lung cancer. It slowed the growth of prostate cancer in mice.

Studies in Israel show that pomegranate juice destroys breast cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.

Heart Healthy: Pomegranates prevent plaque from building up in the arteries and may reverse previous plaque buildup while lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and raises HDL (good cholesterol).
One study showed that drinking 1.7 ounces of pomegranate juice per day lowered systolic blood pressure by as much as 5 percent.
Pomegranate Juice is readily available. Just make sure its 100% pomegranate juice, no added sugar, artificial chemicals, etc. Pure juice!

You can buy the seeds at Trader Joes and toss them in salads especially spinach salads. But if you like to cook collard greens or kale, sprinkle pomegranate seeds on the cooks greens. You can also stir these seeds into a cooked pilaf of rice, couscous or quinoa. Or just snack on them. They are so sweet and crunchy.
If you've never bought a whole pomegranate and harvested the seeds, there is an easy 3 step process.

Cut off the crown, and then cut the pomegranate into sections like you would an orange. Place the sections in a bowl of water, and then roll out the arils, (seeds) and with your fingers. Discard everything else. Strain out the water in a colander. Then eat the seeds.
