Healthy Recipes for You!!
Each week as we introduce a new Juicy Fact, I’ll be sharing a few recipes with you so you can grab these benefits and go! Unfortunately, this week I’ve been ill (again) so haven’t been able to cook up these wonders, and secretly between you and me, I’ve never tried pomegranates before!!
However, I pledge next week when I’m (hopefully) feeling better, I’ll give them a try and let you know how I went with a story on Insta or Snap! If you saw my post yesterday, you saw I grabbed some frozen ones, so I’m keen to try!
So without further ado,..
It’s time for some pomegranates!
Just an FYI, these links are not affiliated. I have found these myself and tried them myself, for my own healthy benefits. I will not receive any entitlements or moolah for sharing with you 🙂
