This “how to” is really simple: How to Easily Remove Pomegranate Seeds. This is such a great winter fruit. As a superfood, pomegranates are a perfect snack, a juicy salad or breakfast topping and a natural addition to desserts. You just grab a knife, bowl filled with water, and a wooden spoon. Wear and apron or clothes you don’t care if they’re stained because the juice can splash! But it’s definitely worth the effort. Pomegranate seeds are just so delicious, you can’t help but eat them by the handful.
For all you chocolate lovers out there, this Chocolate Chai Oatmeal tastes like chocolatey cinnamon heaven. I added the chia seeds for some extra fiber, protein, antioxidants and omega-3’s. I honestly forgot I added them to the oatmeal at all because they blended in so well. The chocolate chips melt into the oatmeal, creating a luxuriously decadent flavor. The end product doesn’t appear too dark or chocolatey because I reduced the amount of cocoa powder since I added chocolate chips as well. Trust me — all the flavor is there. The cinnamon in the chai tea compliments the chocolate, and the fresh raspberries contribute a tartness to the oatmeal’s sweetness. Sometimes you just need a little chocolate for breakfast.
Poached Berries are great — so easy to make, full of flavor, and can be made ahead of time. Another recipe my mom showed me (thanks, Mom!). The berries are especially tasty because by poaching them, you remove the hassle of washing each serving and decrease the time fresh berries will perish; instead, everything’s done in one step and viola! fresh berry sauce for days. Based on my new obsession with chia seeds and breakfast bowls, poached berries paired with overnight oats and chia seeds seemed like a natural combination. Poached berries are perfect to top oatmeal for breakfast or Greek yogurt for a snack or dessert. Try this berry sauce for yourself and discover the enormous flavor behind poached berries!
