A Lovely Pomegranate and Almond Salad

With pomegranates in season for most of us, now's the time to infuse our cells with their many health-enhancing nutrients.

Pomegranates are one of nature's best sources of polyphenols and isoflavones, groups of antioxidants that are thought to help suppress and even kill off cancer cells.

Pomegranates are lower in sugar than most other fruits, making them a good choice for maintaining optimal blood sugar and insulin levels.

Hope you have a chance to enjoy the following recipe for a light and nutritious pomegranate and almond salad.
