Pomegranate Seed Sprinkled Toasted Oats Cereal with Milk
- 1/2 pomegranate (POM) (or you can buy the seeds on their own)
- 1 cup toasted oats cereal (Cheerios)
- 1/2 cup fat free (skim) milk (Publix)
- Cut the pomegranate in quarters.
- Use clean hands to remove each seed (called aril) and to remove fleshy white part (or place quarters in a large bowl of water while doing this step and the fleshy white part will rise to the top).
- Pour cereal in bowl followed by milk and pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!
- Nutrition note: One-half cup pomegranate seeds, is a good source of fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin C, according to the USDA’s Food-A-Pedia. These nutrients, respectively, can help keep you full, aid in blood clotting, and help with colds and cuts. They’ve also got something special that a Nutrition Facts label wouldn’t capture- polyphenols, which are antioxidants.
