A delicious snack to help quench sugar cravings!

**Only 60 pageviews left until we reach our goal of 1000 pageviews for the month of September! I'm so excited about the support that I have received this month and I hope to continue giving my thoughts on workouts.

I've been asked if I will also be sharing some healthy food tips to go along with the workouts. The answer is yes! However I want to focus on the physical aspect of fitness especially. Along the line of this thought I wanted to share a fun snack that I packed to eat on the way to the competition this weekend. Only two ingredients! I came across this by accident. I had a craving for bananas and pomegranates and only one tupperware to put them in. :)

Ingredients needed:
1 Pomegranate
1 Banana

Servings: 2-4 (depending on the amount you want to share or eat)

  1. Cut your pomegranate in half 
  2. In a large bowl of cool water gently work the pomegranate seeds (bubble) out of the pulp. This should be done underneath the water. The pulp will rise to the top of the water and the seeds will sink to the bottom. When you are done  you can scoop the pulp out, drain the water and there you have your pomegranate seeds!
  3. Slice the banana and gently mix the two. The pomegranate gives color and a slight tartness, while the bananas give almost a creamy vanilla taste. I ate it with a spoon as a snack between meals. I can also see this as a healthy dessert or appetizer.
 Happy Training! à bientôt!
