My last post I wrote about my vegan journey and I loved reading all of your comments. I think sharing our stories of how we have gotten to this point in our life really helps strengthen our decision to be vegan. It also help others to see that it is reachable. I hope to continue reading your stories and many more who decide to make the change to a vegan lifestyle.
Below is my review of POM Wonderful juice.
I was more than happy to have the opportunity to try a case of POM Wonderful.
Growing up, my grandparents had a huge pomegranate tree in their backyard. My mom would have us open the fruit up outside and eat them outside so there would be no mess in the house. Yum! So anyways, Keaton, Dave and I tried the juice out and we really liked it! Each bottle went a long way because we used it in our tea, added it to sparkling water, lemonade, or just added more water , since it's from %100 percent pomegranate juice concentrate. It has a full deep pomegranate taste, so adding extra water to it didn't dilute the taste too much.
You can also reduce the juice down and make a lovely syrup to pour over pancakes, non-dairy ice cream or even tofu!
Pomegranates are LOADED with antioxidants! The antioxidants in Pomegranates are higher than even red wine! It's a superpower of antioxidants.
So with that being said here are some other great facts about POM Wonderful:
They are a California company up in the San Joaquin Valley
Wonderful is actually the name of the type of pomegranate they used(who knew there were different varieties?)
They use up every part of the fruit in some way
They manufacture their bottles right next to their filling plant=less transportation waste
They grow, harvest, process and ship their own pomegranates
They use a drip irrigation system=less water usage
There you have it! For those of us that live in California we have a local company that we can support. For all of us that love pomegranates and want to have some available to us year round this is a great choice!
Do organic veggies really cost more?
How much do you think all of this cost? There are 6 cucumbers, 8 large zucchinis, 2 large heads of lettuce, 5 beets, 1 large sweet onion, 2 lemons, head of garlic, 1 small silverline melon and 1 bunch of parsley.
