The purple powerhouse

PRUNES 🙂

My Mom turned me on to these little morsels of fibrey goodness. I do as she does, I leave them on the counter to munch on which also lets them dry out a little more.

Did you know that:

  • Prunes contain an antioxidant that can help prevent free radical damage to fats.
  • The fibre in prunes can help with weight loss.
  • Prunes have been renamed by some marketers to appeal to a younger generation. Their new name = dried plums.

Check out where I found all this great health info for even more information about the dried plum.
