AIP Pomegranate Recipes

When I was first introduced to this delicious fruit, I learned of its heavy symbolism within many cultures. This alone may be why I love pomegranates so much. From the Egyptians to the Greeks, from Judaism to Christianity and so many in between pomegranates were held in high regard and thought to be a symbol of fertility, ambition, prosperity, and the arils inside are said to represent the 613 mitzvot in the Torah.

Pretty cool, right?

  • Pomegranates contain three types of antioxidant polyphenols, including tannins, anthocyanins, and ellagic acid, in significant amounts. Antioxidants are nature’s way of providing your cells with adequate defense against attack by reactive oxygen species (ROS).
  • Their antioxidant activity is known to inhibit cell proliferation and invasion, and promote apoptosis (cell death) in various cancer cells.
  • Pomegranates or pomegranate extract may help reduce joint pain and decrease inflammation in arthritis sufferers.
  • Pomegranates are filled with juicy seed sacs called arils; you can eat the arils whole (fiber-rich seed and all) for optimum nutrition.

      Thanks my dear! I’ll have to make them again, too. It’s been a while since I made them! I’m sure the kids will appreciate it 😉
