How to Buy, Eat, Store the Thirst-Quenching Pomegranate

Pomegranates NOW! - Janice Taylor, Life and Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Pomegranates NOW! – Janice Taylor, Life and Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Greetings Tushkateers (member of the Kick in the Tush Club), Devotees of Our Lady of Weight Loss and whomever else serendipitously landed on this page!  As some of you know, we (my husband and I) moved from NYC to Tucson and lo’ n’ behold there are pomegranate trees in my “yard.”  Because I am a cityGrrl through n’ through, I had to research how to cut, eat and store pomegranates.  Here follows the basics of my hard work! :)  Enjoy one of nature’s best foods!

The Pomegranates high in polyphenols, known to many as the “jewel in winter,” has been crowned one of today’s super-foods.   Researchers from Rambam Medical Center, Haifa, Israel, London’s Hammersmith Hospital and University of Naples, Italy agree: Drinking one glass daily of pomegranate juice may lessen risk of cardiovascular disease.  Pomegranates also contain large amounts of potassium – almost as much as bananas, which help to ward off hypertension.

How to eat:  Cut the fruit in half with a knife.  Let the seeds (arids) fall where they may and gently pick out the rest.  They are a divine addition to yogurt. Sprinkle them on your dry cereal or for a real thrill, mix into your hot oatmeal.  Toss into a salad or garnish your chicken and rice dishes.

How to buy:  Pomegranates should be bright-colored, blotch and blemish-free and feel heavy for their size. Give your pomegranate a bang, and if it sounds like a hollow drum, it’s ripe and you are good to go.

How to store:  You can either store in room temperature for approximately three weeks or in your fridge for a month!  Feel free to freeze the seeds for up to three months.

Did you know that Workplace accidents and errors peak at exactly the same times that our circadian rhythms cause a drop in alertness – between 2 and 5 p.m.!

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.” ~ Barbara Jordan

The Exhausted Modern World.
The modern world puts enormous value on being as productive as humanly possible, which translates into working through lunch, staying late at the office, scheduling play-dates up the wazoo (or is it gazoo?), taking extra classes.

You name it, and we’re trying to fit it into our schedules. Our calendars are about to go up in smoke!

When exhausted you function less efficiently, feel frustrated, overwhelmed, and guess what … you eat more. Your body is sending signals that you are low on energy, because it needs more fuel to keep going!

What to do? Take a nap!

Downtime/Nap Time: A Natural Part of Your Day.
Napping is an opportunity for our minds and body to take a break. Many mammals take naps; and in other parts of the world, napping a.k.a. siestas are worked into the daily routine.

Napping Promotes Health and Well-Being:
30 minute naps promote physical well-being, improve memory and mood;
20 minute naps sharpen your senses and revitalize you; and
10 minute naps can improve mood … feel happy!

If possible, take a nap at the same time every day and use an alarm clock (initially, anyway, until it becomes a part of your routine).

Know This: Napping is essential to your well-being. It’s okay to crawl up in a corner for a few minutes and close your eyes.

9 Steps : How to Move from Fear to Love

What happens when Fish Loves Bird?Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. ~ Corinthians 13

9 Steps: How to Move from Fear to Love

1.  Embrace the Fear of Surrender. Instead of running from fear, instead of pushing it away or shoving it down, down, down; simply embrace it.  Become intimate with it.  Know your fear inside and outside.

2.  Imagine. Place all your fears in a pink bubble and allow the bubble to fly high into the sky, into the stratosphere and watch the pink bubble and your fears dissipate and disappear.

3.  Clear the Space. As the bubbles of fear go up, up, up know that you are clearing a space for true transformation; a space for all the gifts of the Universe, of God to be delivered to you.

4.  Recognize.  Recognize that a burning, indestructible core of life lives within you; the light of love.

5.  Be Fully Present.  Be one with the moment of recognition, one with the everlasting core of inner light and love.

6.  Be the Bodhisattva.  There you are, present, no longer trying to control or manipulate; no longer protecting and defending yourself from the slings and arrows of judgment and criticism.  Simply surrender each moment to the next.

7.  Love.  Allow love to flow through you and then out; streaming out.

8.  Surrender to Love.  When you surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to love.   Love is the interconnected force of the Universe that unites us.
