Be an alcoholic instead!
Well … just kidding about that last part but being a webpreneur and working for yourself (even if just part-time for now) means working and working and working. And sleep and more work. Es demasiado!
Sometimes you just need to chill out … and I’ve got the best recipe for that.
The beauty of the Pomegranate
From ancient Persia (Iran), ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, the pomegranate is an ancient fruit known historically to those regions in text, culture and cuisine but has become recently popular in the western world over the last decade.
It’s health benefits are numerous from anti-oxidants and anti-cancer abilities to reducing cholesterol and cleansing the arteries.
It has a wonderful taste that the more you study it in your mouth, the more complex it can be. It has a beautiful color, a dark rich red, that is matched by it’s touch of bitterness that is strong at first, but balanced by its mild sweetness. Roughly close to cranberry juice … but different.
You will enjoy this drink for its taste and its history – all in your mouth. Cheers!
