November’s Motivational Tip: They say we’re most likely to regret the things we didn’t do. So follow your heart, and go for your dreams.

A Favorite Fall Fruit One of the oldest known fruits, the pomegranate has been cultivated for more than 8,000 years. The name of the fruit derives from the Middle French pome garnete, which means “seeded apple.” Pomegranate trees can live more than 100 years. Late autumn is harvest time for pomegranates, which have a tough outer layer but are filled with crunchy, juicy seeds. The juice and the seeds, called arils, are the only edible parts. Pomegranate seeds are high in vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, fiber and several minerals. They also contain beneficial antioxidants and are believed to reduce joint inflammation, lower blood pressure and improve blood flow.
