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.
- 1 container (6 oz.) of Plain yogurt (I like Stonyfield’s Organic Whole Milk yogurt)
- 1 heaping tablespoon of ground flax seeds
- 3 tablespoons of pomegranate seeds
- Mix it all up and enjoy.
Pomegranate is A good source of dietary fiber and folate, and a very good source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Flax Seeds are good source of magnesium, phosphorus and copper, and a very good source of dietary fiber, thiamin and manganese.
