Drink lots of water/Rosemary

You hear about adding lemons or limes to your water to add flavor so you’ll drink more. And mint leaves are good too. But have you heard of adding a fresh sprig of rosemary, either to your glass or to the pitcher? I’ve been reading lately how rosemary helps with memory too. I didn’t even like rosemary very well but it’s been growing on me lately. Maybe I will try it on chicken next👍

Pomegranates/Christmas fruit

Pomegranates are beautiful dark pink or red fruits. I’ve always thought they were hard to eat until this weekend when my friend Barbara Johnson showed me how to get into them. You can’t eat the outside skin but inside they are filled with these little seeds called arils. This is what you eat. Each aril surprisingly not only has fiber but vitamin D and C and potassium. You can eat them just as there are or add to your fruit salad or tossed salad or on top of your yogurt or cottage cheese. My sister, Rose Carol, tops her ice cream and sherbet with these seeds and the sweet and tart together make a perfect pair. So don’t be afraid. Go buy one and cut off each end then slice like you would a grapefruit. To think all these years I’ve only gotten to eaten them when my sister prepared them for me!
