Jess’s Pomegranate Breakfast

Shares

Here is a quick and easy breakfast recipe that mixes vitamin rich pomegranate seeds with ground flax seeds (a plant source of omega 3 fatty acids). When pomegranates aren’t available, I substitute with blueberries, or finely diced pieces of apple.  See my blog for more on pomegranates and diabetes.
