Hello all (no one yet, I’m sure). I haven’t been a blogger since May of this year, right before I graduated high school. I’d been wanting to set up a blog for over a month now and the incentive that got me to finally make one was when I met someone who had one. So, hopefully I can be interesting enough to get some readers!

And for my first post (though I’m sure I may seem boring already), I will write about the pomegranate. AKA the greatest and most underrated fruit on the planet.

As pretty and red as it looks in that pic above is just as it looks in real life, I swear. It is the sweetest, juicyest fruit ever. Only set-back to the fruit is that it’s expensive. I paid $2.50 for ONE earlier this week. I’m ready to get another one, I’m starting to go into withdrawl. But I’m sure you’re not surprised since I hear that pomegrante juice is expensive aswell.

However, the benefits of pomegranates are AMAZING. Check out the perks of this delicious fruit:

  1. Fights Breat Cancer
  2. Lung Cancer Protection
  3. Slows Prostate Cancer
  4. Keeps PSA Levels Stable (whatever that means!)
  5. Protects the Neonatal Brain
  6. Prevention of Osteoarthritis (which is good for me since my Gran has BAD athritis!)
  7. Protects the Arteries
  8. Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention
  9. Lowers Cholesterol
  10. Lowers Blood Pressure
  11. Dental Protection

As you can tell (or maybe not?), I’m trying to get into this whole “healthy living” thing. With the green tea and the fruits and all. (In general I love fruit, hence, the name fruits and berries). Well, next post I PROMISE to be more interesting.

Until then,
