Celine's Pomegranate Muesli

One of my current Kindle reads is Super Immunity by Dr. Fuhrman.

Let me tell you, after this month's "through the ringer" bout of sickness in our home I need to dig deeper and further apply the wisdom in this book.

So far, I'm really enjoying the book. I love Fuhrman's message and how he's so direct and honest about the dietary truth - we are what we eat.

One of the recipes in the book is Pomegranate Muesli. Celine prepared her own version of it a couple weeks ago while still living with my parents and we all loved it. It was so good. I tweeted it and someone saw that tweet and asked for the recipe.

I'm happy to say my mom posted Celine's version on her Real Food Matters blog. In that post she also shares some behing-the-scenes of sharing a kitchen this summer (who cooked what) and gives a snapshot list of some of the food we prepared during our time together. Reading through it makes my mouth water.

I'm off now to dish up my bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. No offense Damien (our breakfast cook) but I'm wishing it was pomegranate muesli.

    this looks so yummy! i love muesli, such a wonderful summertime (or anytime) breakfast.

    on another note, i downloaded kindle to my mac this morning as a test drive before purchasing. i know libraries loan titles... but looking around on amazon i'm surprised at how expensive they are. super immunity is $12.99. there are benefits to not having all the books around, but i really don't mind shelves of books. any tips for a newbie like me? i'm going to go back and re-read that recent book review post you wrote, i think you talk about e-reading in there. :)

      You know Heather, I honestly I don't have tips (can you believe it!) We pretty much purchased it for Celine, so she has books to read anywhere, anytime. I have just started using it. She's teaching me (smile). We're currently working out how to make space for books in small space living. The Kindle is one part of that. We're not using the Kindle as a cheap way to buy books. More as a tool to try and keep our physical space as clutter free as possible (we're not minimalist by any stretch though).  I don't recall writing much about using an e-reader but you can search kindle in the search box in the top right and see what you can find here at FIMBY.

      Heather, I use kindle for ipad, mainly for cooking, and have gotten some great deals on cookbooks (ranging from 2.99 to 7.99). I think, just like any other product, ebooks can have promo pricing. I keep a running list of what I'm looking for and check prices whenever I think about it.

        Jennifer, That is a good point. I totally forgot about Kindle freebies (sickie brain). Mandi Ehman at Life You Way blogging network writes posts each week that feature free kindle books. Here's a sample. I'm pretty sure these deals are time sensitive, available for limited time. And I can't speak to the quality fo all the books but there must be some good ones. It's an option to look into.

    Is there an easy way to get the fruit out of the pomegranate? As a girl we just picked'em out one by one with our fingers; my youngest was doing that yesterday and that juice splattered in all directions (I am still finding little splotches around). In the book, "The Conscious Cook" we are told to simply cut it in half and 'spank' the back with a spoon and the seeds/fruit will fall out! It didn't work.

      I've never had the seeds "fall out". We usually cut the pomegranate a bit and then crack the whole fruit into chunks, maybe 5 or so (usually we're sharing). We either pull the seeds out with our mouths or fingers and yes, it's messy. I've had splatters on the walls! It's getting better now though, not so messy.

    Renee, I only recently discovered pomegranate juice. I will definitely have to try the mueslie recipe. I really enjoyed reading your mom's post. Hope you are all feeling better. Enjoy a Quebec winter!
