Today: Peel and eat pomegranates like a seasoned veteran.

Don't trust those that claim you need an old, dirty shirt in preparation for peeling and eating pomegranates. With just a paring knife and a bowl of water, you can enjoy this gorgeous fruit -- stain and stress free.

After seeing just how simple it is, add some pretty pomegranate seeds to your Triple Pomegranate Smoothie or Arugula, Pear and Goat Cheese Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette.
