Why Is It?... Prunes Get A "BUM" Rap!
Prunes are a very nutritious and delicious fruit. For those of you who are unaware, a prune is a dried plum. They are naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free and loaded with fiber, vitamin A and potassium. They are almost the perfect food.
So why is it that so many people snub the prune? They way I see it is, if you like plums you should like prunes, Right? Not really. Many people cringe just at the mention of the word PRUNE. Is it because they are packed with fiber and thus may help in (to be polite) moving the digestive tract along? I would think that this is a good thing.
I recently made prune cookies. Needless to say they didn't get the warmest reception. But I don't care, I like them and will continue to sing their praises! EAT MORE PRUNES!!!!!!!!!
