Pomegranates are in season now which means I am eating them as much as I possibly can. They are full of antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber. They also happen to be delicious. One of our favorite easy things to eat these days is take some yoghurt, stir in a hefty scoop of peanut butter and top it with Pomegranate seeds. My sister-in-law who is a Registered Dietician would put a scoop of peanut butter in her morning yoghurt to boost the protein content and stay full until lunch. I tried it once and was hooked. Peanut Butter lends an amazing richness to the creamy yoghurt that I just love. Pomegranates are the perfect complement and add a burst of sweetness, acidity and crunch.  My 4-year-old is skeptical of the seeds so I stir them in well so she doesn’t see them. My 2-year-old gobbles it up any way and asks for more. You can use any full, non or low-fat plain yogurt but I prefer Greek because of the thicker texture and tangier flavor. It’s so good we’ve been known to eat this for dessert!
