I’ve never been a fan of prunes coz they are sticky and messy to eat. But recently, I rediscovered prunes coz my mom experiences occasional constipation and I researched that prunes helps relieve constipation since they are rich in fiber.
Other surprising things I learned about prunes – it contains a lot of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, iron and retinol. They are rich in Vitamin K and contain beta-carotene. In short, they are not just good for people with constipation but also good for the eyes, heart, bones and skin.
I bought a pack of Woodstock Organic Prunes and I super love them. Coz unlike a more popular and mainstream brand, Woodstock Organic Prunes aren’t messy to eat coz their skin is dry and firm. They taste sweet too – unlike other brands which sometimes taste a little sour. Woodstock Organic Prunes are also pitted (no more seed inside).
Because I like them so much, now I don’t only buy for my mom but I also buy for myself. Haha… When I crave for sweets at night, sometimes this is what I have to satisfy my sweet tooth. One serving of prunes is about 6 pieces but 1-2 pieces of prunes are enough to satisfy my sweet craving.
I got this 312g pack of Woodstock Organic Prunes from Healthy Options at Php436.50.
