I recently learned about some amazing research related to bone health, and how eating prunes can significantly help. Considering the conflicting schools of thought as to where dairy stands in the both health equation, I thought this was terrific news. As far as I know, no one has a beef with prunes

Over the past few weeks I’ve been integrating prunes and prune juice into my diet. I’ve enjoyed them tossed on yogurt along with some chopped raw almonds, as shown above, as well as in savory dishes like the one below.
- 1 lb chicken breast sliced into bite size chunks)
- cooking spray or small amount of oil
- 1 cup Sunsweet prune juice
- 3 tbs low sodium soy sauce (gluten-free)
- 1 tbs natural apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup Plum Amazins (diced prunes)
- 8 corn tortillas
- ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese
- Oil non stick skillet, over med-high heat.
- Stir fry the chicken, until just cooked, then remove to bowl and set aside.
- Turn heat to high. Put prune juice, soy sauce and vinegar in pan and stir while reducing.
- After 3-4 minutes add the Plum Amazins, continue to reduce sauce until it is a thin syrupy consistency.
- Toss the chicken back in and stir to coat, then take pan off heat, and set aside.
- Lightly broil the tortillas, then fold into taco shape. (use ready made shells, or flour tortillas if you prefer)
- Scoop the chicken into tacos and sprinkle feta on top.
