November – Dietitian’s Healthy Pick of the Month!

November Is National Pomegranate Month!

The pomegranate is one of those fruits that is a little mysterious and sometimes hard to find – but did you know it’s actually been cultivated for thousands of years.

On the health side, pomegranates explode with fiber, vitamins, nutrients, flavonoids (which, in some studies, are known to be anti-inflammatory), and phytochemicals.

This month, Covenant Care facilities will be cooking up a variety of recipes using apples, as well as creating displays to educate our staff, residents and families. The kitchen will incorporate pomegranates in some creative ways, from salads, sauces, sparkling drinks and more. This is all part of the Enhanced Dining services which includes the “Dietitians Healthy Pick of the Month”.
