{pompin it up}

How to cut a pom. 

#1 Put on a Apron. 
#2 Cut top of pom off.. the little tail looking thing.
#3 Cut it into 4 segments
#4 Pick out as much seeds that easily "pomp" out. hehe.. 

#5 Fill up a bowl with water
#6 place the remaining pom seeds, the ones stuck to all that white crap inside the bowl. 
The water will help those seeds float away from the membrane aka "white crap"

#7 Drain and store seeds in a tupperware for safe keeping

Keep some out to snack on.
or put in your breakfast!!

1/2 C. of old fashioned oats
1/2 scoop vanilla elite whey
Pom Seeds be generous, they are delicious
1 tbs ground flax seed
small handful of slivered almonds
1 tsp ground PB
