Pom juice is very nutritious but many people are perplexed at actually juicing one! It's too easy…..http://veganamericanprincess...

I like to seed pomegranates.. Maybe I'm weird lol. I love them in salads and also just eating them out of a bowl with a spoon!
Also try them as an ice cream topping--so so good, and much healthier than sprinkles ;)

It's going to be the year of the pomegranate! :) Thanks so much — this collection was the kick in the butt I needed to deseed the pomegranate sitting on my counter.
