Pomegranate arils also make the best salad add-on. And again, unlike cheese and nuts, the pack on flavor without the calories. I bought 28 pomegranates from the store this week, as they get "old" my local grocery store bundles them up into packages of 4 each for just a $1.50 a pack! That's dirt cheap when they are usually 2 pons for $4 or 2 for $5. And I know I don't have to even mention just how good they are for you! Sore throat? eat a pom. Got a cold? Eat a pom. Feeling a little down? Eat a pom. The list goes on and on and on.
