SWAP IN SOME POMEGRANATE JUICE
You know it as a cocktail mixer, but this ruby-red drink also has health benefits. The high antioxidant content of 100 percent pomegranate juice may have a beneficial impact on cardiovascular health, help balance cholesterol levels, and decrease blood pressure, and its polyphenols can fight the effects of stress. Drink it straight, blend it in a smoothie, or mix it with white balsamic vinegar to drizzle on a salad. Source: Parents advisor Maya Feller, R.D., a nutritionist in Brooklyn, New York.
