HIGH RANKING POMEGRANATES… Not All Juices Are A Like!


On May 10, 2010, I started writing a  new post on knowing your juices, including the  benefits of Pomegranate Juice. Today, 5/12, Yahoo posts front page, from Men’s Health, “The Unhealthiest Juices in America. Parabenfree and Organic Blog provides you front page, vital information before the magazine is off the press. This blog is for YOU, delivering  accurate information and where to get it. Drink Up and read on…   Your comments are  appreciated!

Pomegranates are an A List Star when it comes to the vast benefits this fruit provides our bodies. Additional to the folic acid, fiber and anti-oxidants, Pomegranates are a rich source of Vitamin C.

Not all Pomegranate Juices are alike. The bottle may say fresh, but check it, because it could be concentrated, which means you are not getting fresh Pomegranate juice. Your best bet is Evolution Fresh, you can find the brand and their variety of natural juices, fruits and vegetables at Whole Foods, Ralphs, Bristol Farms and Gelsons. Evolution Fresh’s supreme quality and gratifying taste delivers a Pomegranate juice full of flavor, nutrients and no bitter after taste. Their delicious tasting Pomegranate juice leaves you wanting more and their Apple juice is addictive!  www.evolutionfresh.com

HIGH POINT POMEGRANTE NEWS! Pomegranate juice is known to lower bad cholesterol and stimulate the immune system. Pomegranate juice helps alleviate post-menopausal and menopausal symptoms due to the Phytoestrogen found in the Pomegranate seeds. Pomegranate juice is beneficial for those with digestive disorders by stimulating digestion. A UCLA study indicates that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every day can assist in slowing down the spread of prostate cancer, the leading cause of death of men in the USA. It is important to drink up when it comes to this FRESH purple juice!

At the Farmers Market Apple Sherrill Orchard’s Pomegranate natural juices are tasty; they have a variety of flavors and several juices are made kid friendly. It is a family run business. The juices come straight from the farm to the farmers market. Obviously, it is bottled in-between. In my opinion, their juice has a rich, non-bitter taste that can often be found in Pomegranate juice. The contact information is below. If you live in Los Angeles, CA, you can find them at any Farmers Market.

SANTA RITA HILLS – AN ORGANIC TASTY WEEKEND…


Organic has never tasted so good. Who knew just a few hours outside of Los Angeles, CA the mecca of Pinot Noir is at our fingertips. Santa Barbara 2007 awarded CLOS PEPE Winery with the Green Award, the only one given each year, quite an honor.

GREEN CAN TASTE GOOD! Just a few hours beyond Santa Barbara, Santa Rita Hills beauty is matched by the fragrant, rich, organic vines that align the blue water colored skies. Describing the birth of a wine culture is a vastly underrepresented phenomenon: the culinary craft and the people creating it in Santa Rita Hills share their labor and produce a community of unique wines, rich with personalities, and experienced wine makers.

Wes Hagen is an award-winning winemaker and wine grower for 10+ years at Clos Pepe Vineyards, recognized by the Wine Spectator as one of the Top 30 Pinot Noir Producers in California.  Wes has also judged wine professionally for 10 years, was the Central Coast Winegrowers Association Grower of the Year, 2000-2001, has produced wines rated 93-95 points by national wine pubs, is an avid wine educator and has been writing for Winemaker magazine for 7 years.

Wine making in Santa Rita Hills is a family business. Brewer Clifton Wines and Palomino Winery is a husband and wife team, with a growing family that continue to grow beautiful children, and elegant and stellar award winning Chardonnay and Pinot Nior Wines.
