Here is an interesting article that explains some of the health benefits of whole foods – in this case, pomegranate. Now, I am not talking about fruit juice or ‘POM’ that is popular these days. I am talking about the whole fruit and the seeds as well.
There is no substitute for whole foods and since juices that you purchase in stores are pasteurized and are very high in sugars (even naturally occurring fruit sugars), packaged or bottled juices are simply not a good idea.
If you want to lose fat – or want a good snack for your kids – or want something sweet that wont derail your health, fitness and fat loss success, then i suggest finding out WHERE and WHEN you can get your hands on fresh, organic produce.
If I can find fresh, organic foods in the heart of the concrete jungle – then I am sure you can find them wherever you live as well.
Here are some powerful tips that will skyrocket your health — Go online and find your local green market, Whole Foods or health food store and find out:
WHEN the produce is delivered
WHICH fruits and vegetables are grown locally
WHICH fruits and veggies are in season
Figure out HOW OFTEN you need to go grocery shopping as fresh produce goes bad withing 2-3 dyas
Follow these healthy lifestyle tips and your body will thank you!
