Pomegranate For Lunch

Posted on December 04, 2014 by Bennett Coffey | 0 Comments

 

'Tis the season for pomegranate and my body has definitely been craving it. I love this juicy, superfruit. I used to be deterred by the process of pulling out all the pomegranate seeds but now I thoroughly enjoy it. It gives me a chance to handle the food and contemplate what a perfect whole food it is and how lucky I am to be eating it. It's one of the highest antioxidant fruits, great for lowering blood pressure and is thought to help relieve depression. I'll take it! On a salad, in a smoothie, in a chocolate bar, whole....any way I can get it! I made a delicious lunch today with pomegranate and can't help but share it, it was so beautiful and yummy! Here it is:

1 cup steamed broccoli

1 cup chickpeas, rinsed

2 tbs pomegranate seeds

2 tbs hemp seeds

Olive oil

Balsamic vinegar

Sea salt

Place the broccoli in a pot and steam it for 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, drain your canned (organic if possible) chickpeas and place about a cup of that into a bowl. When broccoli is done (you can easily pierce a knife through the stems) place in bowl with chickpeas. Sprinkle pomegranate and hemp seeds and drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar to your liking. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on top. Voila! This meal will leave you feeling nourished and satisfied I hope. If you want to get really crazy, sprinkle some cacao nibs on there too! Let me know how it turns out!

New chocolate bar in the works!

There has been a lot of creative action in the kitchen this week. So many new developments. Julianna is working on some new delicious raw treats for the store, check out her bark pictured on the left. It is SO amazing. I have been playing with new chocolate bar flavors as well, I have a ginger pomegranate bar sweetened with maple syrup that a lot of people have said is their favorite bar so far! Stay tuned for that one. Yesterday I played around with a coconut almond flavor sweetened with coconut nectar. I am playing with new sweeteners in an attempt to move away from agave because of all the controversy. Although we trust our source and of course only use raw agave, we want to provide more options for you all in case you’ve made the choice to shy away from agave. I’m loving the maple syrup and coconut nectar, they are super sweet and delicious. Today I’m going to play with a SPICY flavor so I’m really excited to see how that turns out. But if you guys have any suggestions on what you’d like to see in a new flavor please let us know and share below!! And of course, come by the factory to taste test :)
