      Good tip! Thank you. I find that a lot of the time I tend to consume food first and then fruit afterwards, or I won't even get the chance to eat fruit because I would feel full but I never thought to do it vice versa.

      And it just so happens to be that pomegranates are my favourite fruit! Thank you for sharing.

      I found this hub from a link on my hub about eating raw food. What makes fruit the purest food and good for detoxing is that other foods take a few hours to digest in the stomach. Whereas fruits are pre-digested and pass through the stomach in about 15 minutes. That is why it is good to eat fruit first and wait 15 minutes.

      Also recent research shows that the juice of pomegranates can clean out the plaque in arteries that cause heart attacks and strokes.
