Bad Office Snacks- Take 1

I threw a Take 1 in there because I'm sure I'll have more down the line.

Today's culprit:

Yup, a pomegranate.

Who eats a pomegranate at work?  I do.  But who cuts/peels a pom at work?  That would be me too.

In my defense I had no clue what I was getting myself in to having never eaten one before.

I think those seeds are beautiful, they look to me like rubies. Gorgeous deep red color.  Well you know what color the juice of those lovely rubies is?  Yup, you guessed it, RED.  And let's just say that sometimes you accidentally crush a seed and it shoots juice across the room.  So yeah, probably not a good idea to carve the thing up on my desk.  Needless to say, quite a few of my papers now have some red stains on them.  Oops!

But now that I'm done, look how pretty!

Thing is, I'm not a big seed person.  I love blackberries but don't usually eat them because I hate when the seeds get stuck in my teeth.  Poms are all seeds.  So right now I'm sucking the membrane off them and then spitting them out in to a container, again, great office behavior.

On that note...happy snacking!

There is definitely a science to peeling and eating a pom. I love them, but I don't eat them very often because they take forever to peel! I usually do it in the sink with an apron on because that red juice does not come out of your clothes. Not a great office snack, for sure. :)
