A big part of your best offense and defense all year long will be choosing the right foods to fuel your body. The power of whole foods is so beautiful, and when it comes to pomegranates, you can see the antioxidant goodness shine through in that beautiful ruby red color. It happens to be National Pomegranate Month, which kicks off the three months when the Jewel of Winter – that’s pomegranates – are in season and at their best November through January.
You can incorporate the fruit and its arils into many fun recipes, such as snacks, salads, and elegant mocktails. Not only does pomegranate juice look so beautiful in a glass, but it also has, on average, four times the antioxidants of green tea. And it’s just pomegranates, so it’s a great ingredient to work with. Each 16 oz. bottle has the juice of four whole-pressed pomegranates. That’s it - no fillers and never any added sugars.
This is not your ‘80s mocktail. Today’s buzz-free sips are more sophisticated. So it can feel special, without the hangover. It will continue to be a big trend going into 2022. Millennials and Gen Zers are especially sober-curious. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing, but the choice to go booze-free in an elevated way is on the rise and on-trend.
Every pomegranate has a variety of polyphenol antioxidants in the juice and the fresh fruit. These antioxidants help fight free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can cause damage to our bodies over time. Every 8 ounces of POM Wonderful 100% pomegranate juice has 700 mg of polyphenol antioxidants. Plus, you’ll get that fiber boost from the fresh POM Wonderful Pomegranate arils sprinkled on top.
You can find the family of POM Wonderful products at your local grocery store in the produce department. Fresh pomegranates and POM Wonderful Pomegranate Arils are available from now until February, so get them while they’re in season.
