Lovely Sunday to you, and a wonderful 2. Advent. Just fancied a simple salad for breakfast this morning with some pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry, pomegranate and papaya.
Cranberry sauce as a staple at the holidays, but cranberries are a superfood that you should enjoy all year round.
Cranberries have vitamin C and fiber, and are only 45 calories per cup. In disease-fighting antioxidants, cranberries outrank nearly every fruit and vegetable–including strawberries, spinach, broccoli, red grapes, apples, raspberries, and cherries.
The primary source of pomegranate’s benefits come from its antioxidant content , particularly ellagitannin compounds like punicalagins and punicalins, which account for about half of the pomegranate’s antioxidant ability . It’s also an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin C, with one pomegranate providing about 40 percent of the daily requirement for this vitamin.
