How do Pomegranates give your body such nutritional love?

Perk up the inner-passions and ease into winter with the wonderful POMEGRANATES we have on the island!! This time of year, we can pick them off the trees here in Ibiza and use them to sprinkle over salads like festive jewels… or Juice up for a MASSIVE vitamin C boost full of ANTIOXIDANTS and delight in the deliciousness of the colour of LOVE.

Persians believe that the Pomegranate was the forbidden fruit that Eve plucked from the tree of knowledge and its’ health-giving qualities certainly make this seem possible!  It will sharpen your mind and gift you with clarity.  Ancient Egyptians buried their dead with Pomegranates for eternal life and it is traditionally for good luck.

* Pomegranates are full of antioxidants

* Pomegranate seeds (and drinking pomegranate juice) increases oxygen levels to the heart

* And eating the seeds can even be a natural viagra!

So even if the sun doesn’t shine *every* day – there are still plenty of things to do…   in the kitchen…. and beyond :0)
