POM Season

This is a true story.
*
I started getting a cold last night.
The head ached.
The nose had that strange, tingling heaviness.
*
I took a Vitamin C with 100% POM Juice
and woke this morning to a clear head {and nose}.
All hail the pomegranate.
While formal studies indicate that pomegranates enhance your immune function, the only study that ultimately matters to me is my can-it-keep-a-cold-at-bay test.
And today it did.
I’m convinced I staved off the seasonal goo-gaw
with my potent POM juice potion. YippeKaiAyARoo.

And here’s an ever more delightsome way to get your POM on…

    I cannot wait to try this one. Never knew that Pomegranate was so powerful when it came to colds…I am definitely gonna have to try that method instead of the cold meds. I look forward to your new recipes as it gives me something new to try on my hubby. He loves all things new!!

    YUM YUM and more YUM! You are truly talented Brooke. I knew you could cook, but you are on the realms of Betty Crockerhood and I am not even kidding! I have to follow a recipe exactly and can never just throw things together, so you my friend are an inspiration! Thanks!
