The amazing Pomegranate!

Both the peel and seeds are edible and an average pomegranate contains about 500-1400 seeds. The seeds contains:
– Only 83 calories
– 4gr fibers per 100 g serving
– A 100 g portion contains 10.2 mg of vitamin C (17% of daily DV)
– A 100gr portion contains 16 mcg of vitamin K (20% of daily DV)
“Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines for Americans, for optimal health with a 2000-calorie diet, you should consume 2 cups of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables per day.” (source livestrong.com)
Also the peel is edible:
“The peel is good for the heart and blood vessels; the white membrane is good for stopping diarrhea and good for wounds and ulcers of the mouth and throat. The fruit also strengthens the brain, cleanses the body and blood from toxins, and is very good at expelling worms from the intestines,” (source ISRAEL21c)

How to preserve an Iceberg lettuce

Iceberg lettuce is often a fairly large vegetable and to avoid throwing out the rest, you can keep the salad fresh in the refrigerator up to a week with the following method:
– Cut the piece you need by also cutting through the stem
– Cut the stem to remove the brown part
– Put some water in a container. Very little water
– Place the salad in the container so that only the stem pipe water
Make sure the leaves are not touching the water because then the lettuce will rot quickly.
