Fall is finally here, and I couldn't be happier. I know it means, that winter is just around the corner, but if you live or ever been to San Francisco, you will know, it's the time, when we get to enjoy our summer. We still get all the bounty of the harvest season and long awaited, gorgeous, warm weather. Life is beautiful and it makes me want to drag all of my friends to a fall picnic, eat lots of apples, pears and pomegranates. Indulge on sweetness of dates,figs and persimmons. Photograph even more, listen to Kate Bush. Take long strolls around the city and stop by any cafe, that has patio seating.
So, what are you doing this first fall weekend? Are you going to celebrate the season? Are you cooking anything special, making your fall-to-do list???
There is lots of yoga on my list, and as a reward some delicious smoothies.
I'm leaving you for the weekend with this pomegranate-orange smoothie recipe, it's so easy to make and it couldn't be more nutritious. Did you know that pomegranates are packed with fiber, vitamin C and lots of antioxidants? They are so good for your heart. Their season is just starting now, so head over to the farmers' market this Saturday.
To prepare Pomegranate-Orange smoothie you will need:
*seeds of 4 pomegranates, free of any yellow pith, it has really bitter taste, click here for instructions
*freshly squeezed juice of one orange
Process pomegranate seeds with orange juice and some ice in the blender until smooth. Divide between two glasses and enjoy!
Have a beautiful weekend!
