Pomegranate Seeds Can Add Important Fiber
It’s the simplest changes in your eating patterns that can help you quickly lose weight. As you learn how to eat a whole-food diet instead of prepackaged foods, you need to add more fiber to your meals. One way to do this is to incorporate pomegranates into your menu.
Of course, you probably already know you can put pomegranate seeds (arils) into smoothies for extra flavor. However, you can also eat them raw, add them to salads, make a meat marinade from them, or use them as a dipping sauce. They work well with other fruits for creating a divine sweet and sour flavor.
You might also want to sprinkle them one your favorite breakfast foods. For instance, you can mix them into your yogurt-based mixed berry parfait. Otherwise, maybe top off some whole grain cereal or oatmeal with them. If you’re feeling even more daring, you can add some to your freshly-baked vanilla bread pudding.
Once you have an idea of how these seeds are used, you can tap into your inner creative being and start making up your own recipes. However you choose to eat them, you will gain all their benefits. They’re an excellent source of fiber, potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and folate.
Because of their high nutritional value, they can help reduce belly fat, increase “good” (HDL) cholesterol, and decrease “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. These tiny little seeds can also provide antioxidants as they boost your immune system. Using them can also help you control blood sugar levels and build a stronger defense against cancer, sickness and disease.
Try using pomegranates more often. If you like them, this will be one step toward making healthier recipes. As a result, you will lose weight in a relatively short period without having to starve your body.
