Leaving Sugar Behind with Pomegranate Seeds

This is a tough one for most of us, reducing or cutting the sugar in our eating.  It is worth it!  There are ways to make it easier and I am sharing one with you today.  Sometimes it is simply finding an alternative way to get the sweetness in your life.

I have recently revisited pomegranate seeds.  I have avoided them for years due to the seasonal unavailability and the difficulty in getting to them (literally, the seeds are a bear to extract from the peel).  Thanks to a few hacks, one being Costco shopping, these sweet little jewels are available now more than ever.  They are now available in the refrigerated section at Costco, already removed from the peel and in small serving sizes.  I ate up my last supply too quickly before I got a picture to share, but I will take one and post it as soon as I refresh my supply from Costco.

If Costco is not a place you frequent, there is still hope!  Purchase the whole fruit from your grocer and here is a kitchen hack to make extracting those little beads of sweetness easy!  Wooden Spoon Trick.  It literally takes no time at all!  Try it.

Here is my favorite recipe to share..a new salad to help you leave sugar behind The Transition Salad
