Breakfast Bento and a Pomegranate Tip
Friday I had to get to work extremely early so I brought a breakfast bento.
In the top container, yogurt, blueberries, and some nuts.
In the bottom container, a toasted mini-bagel with peanut butter, a clementine, and some pomegranate seeds.
Now here's a neat way to get your pomegranate seeds out & separated without producing a bloody mess on your counter.
Slice just barely through the pomegranate skin from the outside, in quarters, like this:
Then peel the skin down gently along the slices, to reveal the seeds in all their glorious little compartments:
The seeds can then easily be removed and you don't smash them, as you would when cutting the whole fruit in sections first.
Usually when I make a great discovery like this, it turns out that everybody knew it already...so forgive me if this tip is already general knowledge!
