The most amazing, fantastical, awesome, friggin spectacular thing ever happened to me!
Read on to find out.
Recently I have been wanting to get out of my food rut, so when I saw pomegranates in the store I thought I would pick a couple up to try. A little bit about pomegranates…
Pomegranates contain very high levels of anti-oxidants.
Excellent sources of vitamin B (riboflavin, thiamine, biotin, folic acid), vitamin C, phosphorus and calcium.
Pomegranates are tangy, sweet and juicy all at once. They can be used in drinks, savory dishes, desserts and used as garnish. Pomegranates can be kept for two months after purchasing as long as they are stored in a cool place.
All I can say about pomegranates is that they need more preperation than your average fruit. If you want to have some with your morning breakfast you might want to do it the night before hand. Otherwise you will be scraping the insides of a pomengrante at 6’oclock in the morning half asleep. 😉
Overall I thought that the pomegranates were tasty, but I was expecting way more in terms of flavor. Maybe I had my hopes set to high after hearing so many wonderful things about them on the blogosphere, or perhaps mine wasn’t fully ripe. What is your favorite way to enjoy a pomegranate?
The other night my mom and I made pizzas. On mine I used a mini ezekiel wrap, homemade humus, broccoli, peas, grape tomatoes, olives and a sprinkle of vegan parmesan.
Now for my super amazing news. Remember when I job shadowed at The Flaming Ice Cube about a month ago? Well last night I got a call from Jessica who I mentored, and she told me that they have a posistion available and get this…
they offered me a job!
I can’t believe that I am now working for my favorite vegan restaurant! My first day on the job is this saturday, where I am going to be getting trained. 🙂
Sorry for the quick post tonight. I have a lot of preperation to do for mid-terms and final exams next week. Plus I have a zumba class and then I am going out to dinner with my good friend at Chipotle.
I hope you enjoyed you wednesday!
Question of the day – What was/is your first job?
