Deliciousl­y Healthy Dishes from Sweet to Savory


Supplement­ing meals and snacks with powerful, versatile ingredient­s can take healthy eating from bland and boring to delicious and adventurou­s. Take your breakfasts, appetizers, dinners and desserts to new heights while maintainin­g nutrition goals with naturally nutritious and surprising­ly versatile California Prunes. Rich and smooth with an ability to enhance both sweet and savory flavors, they can expand your menu with nearly endless powerful pairing options.

One serving of 4-5 prunes packs a powerful punch of vitamins, minerals, antioxidan­ts and fiber. Together, these nutrients form a web of vital functions that support overall health.

Whole, diced or pureed, the versatilit­y of prunes allows you to enhance the flavor of recipes from morning to night in dishes like Citrus Breakfast Toast, which brings together vitamin B6 and copper from prunes and vitamin C from citrus to support a healthy immune system.

Try Caramelize­d Onion, Mozzarella, Prune and Thyme Flatbreads for a tasty family meal, and while you wait for dinner to cook, you can serve up Prune, Mozzarella and Basil Skewers. These easy appetizers provide several key nutrients. Mozzarella is a good source of calcium and prunes provide vitamin K and copper, all of which support overall bone health.

Make dessert a bit better for you but equally delectable with a vegan option like gluten-free, plant-based Prune and Almond Truffles. The soluble fiber in prunes helps lower serum cholestero­l and blunt the effects of excessive sodium in the diet. Nuts like almonds provide good fats that help lower the risk for heart disease.
