Remember this Thanksgiving
You are what you eat enjoy but don’t over do it, you’ll be working off the calories later:)
Lately I’ve been going all organic and as a college student it can be hard because going organic sometimes is expensive but I’m a bargain shopper so I’ll be posting about how to eat healthy on a budge. Each week I’ll post new healthy foods to try and recipes to use them in. One thing I’ve found lately that is a fruit full on nutrients and anti oxidants is Pomegranates! They are great and I’ve found many uses for them. I’ll post the best way to open up and get the seeds out of the Pomegranate.
Health Benefits of Pomagranate:
-The fruit is moderate in calories; 100 g provides 83 calories, slightly more than that in the apples. It contains no cholesterol or saturated fats.
-Regular consumption of fruits in the diets boosts immunity, improves circulation, and offers protection from cancers.
-Pomegranates contains approximately 50% of your daily recommended vitamin C.
The best way to get the seeds out without making a mess is to:
1. Cut the pomegranate in half then those halves break them apart so you have four pieces.
2. Get a bowl and fill it up halfway with water, holding the fruit under water break sections apart with your fingers separating the seeds from membrane the seeds will sink to be bottom.
3. Discard the skin and membranes, drain the seeds and dry on paper towel then you can place your yummy seeds in a container and save for later use or eat them now!
Remember your bodies are not your own, so honor them by feeding your souls with good nutrients!

Tips for Healthy Grocery Shopping:
I remember one time, my parents and I were travelling in the car on the way home from somewhere. I remember travelling in the car with them a lot, when I was young. We lived on a farm, so even going to the local town meant a good 45 minutes in the car. So obviously, to pass the time, we often talked together. One of the interesting things about my memories of these conversations is how many of them were about ideas. We didn’t really talk about what was happening on the farm or at school. We talked about more abstract concepts.
On this particular occasion, Dad was talking about church, and mentioned something he’d said in a sermon. ‘Could I give sermons when I grow up?’ I asked him. ‘Could I be a priest?’
It was the mid-80s. We were Anglican Church-goers, and the idea of women in the…
