According to myth, if you eat the food from the underworld then you are cursed to never leave.
In some versions of the original myth Persephone becomes forever trapped in the ominous underworld because she is tricked into eating the seeds of a pomegranate.
Lucky for us mortals, we can eat all the pomegranate we want and not have to worry about getting stuck somewhere with the dead!
Pomegranate is a wonderful fruit, and it's full of lots of things that are super good for you too. So, why not indulge.
1 green apple
1 small can of mandarin oranges in light syrup
Make sure you wash all your fruit before cutting and eating it
Cut open Pomegranate and take out all the seeds, placing them in a small-medium sized bowl
Core and cut the apple, place into bowl
Drain excess syrup from mandarins and put them into the bowl with the apple and pomegranate
Slice up as many strawberries as you'd like
Add as many blackberries as you like
Ta-da! You're done!
This is not only a quick and easy snack to make, but it is also very healthy and light.
You can always add more or less of anything that you want, these are just my favorites, and they go well together.
Also, it is perfectly safe to eat the whole pomegranate seed. In fact, part of the nutritious value is in the seed itself. :)
