Drinking Antioxidants

Eating blueberries and pomegranate seeds is a great way to get antioxidants into your system. When you’re tired of just chowing down on raw fruits, try juicing! It’s fairly easy to combine them into a palatable, healthful drink: whiz them up in a blender, and strain out the pulp.

Even easier: buy the ready-made juice at the store. Be sure to check the label to verify that there’s actual blueberry and pomegranate in there. Naked Juices, available at Whole Foods, is a very good brand for this sort of thing. Their blueberry stuff has a true blueberry flavor. Sadaf brand pomegranate juice is also nice; their stuff is 100% fruit juice, and it’s not made from concentrate. Good prices, too. Check it out at Sadaf.

RW Knudsen makes good 100% pomegranate juice.

POM Wonderful has 100% pomegranate juice, plus four other flavors. It’s available in most supermarkets and makes a nice cocktail mixer, too.

Trader Joe’s has blueberry/pomegranate juice, made from concentrate.

Middle Eastern markets will have pomegranate juice at good prices. And don’t forget pomegranate wine!

SF Chronicle recently did a taste test.
