Did you ever have a food that, when growing up, you’d cross your arms, shake your head and protest but now, as an adult, you love it?
Growing up, I remember that I would wrinkle my nose up and protest at the mere mention of the word “Prune.” However, if there was a plum to be had in the fruit bowl, that plum was mine. I LOVE grilling plums, adding them to sweet and savory dishes and, now that I’m older and a wee bit wiser, I know that prunes are, essentially, dried plums and there is always a bag in the pantry to mix into various dishes, trail mixes and the like.
Plus – I’ve learned there are added bonus to keeping prunes on hand. Prunes have some amazing health benefits. We’re talking bone health, fiber and potassium benefits here! They are helpful as they have a low glycemic index so you feel fuller longer. They are sweet so you don’t need as much sugar. They really are the “Feel Good Fruit.”
