Magical, Bad Ass Pomegranate Seeds

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Pomegranate seeds are freaking magical. I use them in/on everything.

Why?

Glad you asked.

Welp, they’re anti-aging, fight cancer, help control blood pressure, loaded with nutrients/antioxidants, low cal, & a total superfood.

These are some of the ways I use the tiny red antioxidants:

<< On top of fro-yo or coconut (dairy-free) ice cream with a bit of real maple syrup.

<< I use them in a juicer with kale, cucumber, lemon, & ginger.

<< In the mood for a Mexican fiesta? Throw them on top of enchiladas or tacos.

<< Sprinkle them on top of a smoothie.

<< A skinny pomegranate margarita ( or mojito ) is freaking delish.

<< Make a mocktail: sparkling water, lime, & pomegranate seeds.

<< Salsa. Just trust me. Add them to any salsa & get ready to die.

<< Greek yogurt, cinnamon, & pomegranate seeds= heaven.

<< Sprinkle some seeds on your oatmeal…so much better than sugary-ass Crasins.

<< Use 45 calorie flaxseed Oasis toast & mash the seeds with a fork to make ‘jam.’

<< On top of a sweet potato.

<< They pair well with any fish ( ESP tuna!).

<< In champagne. Because duh, bubbly & pomegranate seeds? Die.

<< My absolute favie way to use the seed: add them to literally any salad or quinoa ( << I do this daily ). So yummers.

FYI: I am not a fan of pasteurized pomegranate juice- I would rather just use the real fruit. Also, if eating them instead of drinking the seeds provides tons of fiber. The seeds can be found at any Trader Joe’s location.

Because let’s be honest: removing those lil shits from the white part of the fruit is a real bitch!

The best part: it so easy to just throw the seeds on anything. I mean, seriously. Pomegranate seeds are the bomb.com.

Right?!

Happy weekend! xx.

My Favorite Snack in the World= Avo + Low Carb Toast

If you read TSC then you know I’m all for easy, healthy, quick snack ideas. This isn’t the 1950′s where women have hours to cook. I mean, OMG, who has time to whip up a piece of seasoned salmon and an organic vegetable medley with a side of lentils? Seriously. Unless you’re Martha Stewart, the easier/healthier/quicker, the better.

So on that lil note, this probs isn’t the right blog for someone who’s looking to cook beef wellington or fresh baked bread. Unless it’s an occasion, I’m keeping it simple, stupid.

Anyway.

Let’s talk about avocado. An avo a day, keeps the doctor away. Like, if avocado were a guy, I’d marry his ass. The fruit ( yes, it’s a fruit ) contains so many sexy health benefits ( to name a few: tons of Vit E, lowers cholesterol, prevents breast cancer, & is fab for the heart ) + they’re absolutely delish. I’m literally addicted.

Examples of easy/quick ways I eat a daily avocado: on rice crackers, out of the shell with salt & lemon, fresh guac, on top of pizza, in salads, smoothies, &/or with cottage cheese. Today I took pics of how I ate him: on low carb toast ( Oasis is my fav ) with Meyer lemon, a slice of tomato, a dash of salt, & a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

Bam! The best snack evs.

For Sunday’s big football game substitute some low carb crackers to make this snackie poo as an appetizer. Your boytoy will be in heaven.

Make Your Own Healthy Jam in Five Seconds

These blog is all about eating what you love with slight modifications. I have all these weird, odd food tricks I do on daily basis…Example: I like jam & toast. So, I started making my own berry jams— and no, we aren’t talking the cute, cozy, Martha Stewart kind of way. Since I am always running late, my healthy jam trick needed to be time efficient. Cue “the Five Second Jam” recipe. I use any type of berry [ preference: raspberries, boysenberries, &/or blueberries { sometimes all mixed together } ], throw about eight on a plate, & mash them with a fork. Then I sprinkle 1/3 of an all-natural Truvia packet on the berries + one squeeze of lemon. Pop a piece of 7-carb Oasis bread in the toaster & then add your homemade jam-  & voilà! This instantly cuts the processed sugars & the other shitty chemicals that are in most store-bought jelly/jams/preserves.

+ Side note: adding a swipe of almond butter [ << hello protein! ] to the finished product is delicious too!
