Day 28

A Different Fruit A Day Personal Health Challenge


Oma’s Pomegranate trees are filled with red ripening fruit. One thing that Oma has learned by experience is to watch the pomegranates closely, because if you do not pick them the minute they are ripe, the squirrels will climb the trees and eat them all. 

Pomegranates are hard and messy to eat. Oma now squeezes the juice out of them with a Hand Juicer Press. You would be surprised at how much delicious juice you will easily harvest! 

Each pomegranate is about 83 calories. The fruit is suggested by nutritionists in the diet for weight reduction and cholesterol controlling programs. Regular inclusion of fruits in the diets boosts immunity, improves circulation, and offers protection from cancers. 

Oma loves to use her fresh squeezed juice in her adult refreshment. Check out the Oprah’s Pomegranate Martini recipe: Just shake 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice; 2 ounces Absolute Citron vodka or white tequila; 1 ounce Cointreau liquor; cup of ice; splash of sparkling water (optional) ; and squeeze of lemon (optional). Then put in chilled martini glasses and garnish with pomegranate fruit.
