(BPT) – So, you made a New Year’s resolution to add more better-for-you foods into your daily routine — but have you figured out what those new foods are going to be yet?

One of the biggest challenges with improving eating habits is finding great options that you enjoy — this is key for ensuring your resolution lasts beyond January. To help you get started, consider adding an incredibly versatile ingredient to your meals, snacks and drinks, like POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice.

The unique flavor of pomegranate provides opportunities to heighten the taste of sweet and savory dishes alike and can also add a fresh twist to favorite recipes that you already enjoy making. Better yet, POM Juice offers the perfect way to add a burst of antioxidant goodness to a wide variety of drinks and dishes. POM Juice is also a good source of potassium and contains no added sugar, fillers or preservatives — just the juice of whole-pressed pomegranates, and nothing else.
