We all find it hard to keep up with the oaths we took to ourselves about maintaining a healthy diet, especially when we have a sweet tooth. So how about we substitute unhealthy snacks with ones that are full of beauty and health boosters?!

Today I’d like to introduce Plums… Coming in a variety of attractive colors, from deep purple, orange, red, yellow to green, these soft and juicy fruits are so rich in nourishing, hydration and beauty essentials, like:

  1. Antioxidants that help maintain our cells young & fresh, and thus, delay the aging process, and
  2. Prevent appearance & progression of stretch-marks
  3. Fibers that promote digestion & help keep toxins moving out of the body
  4. Vitamin A, which is good to keep up vision & delay age-related short vision
  5. Vitamin C, which not only is important to boost immunity, but also to
  6. Increase Iron absorption by the body, and
  7. Protect cholesterol from becoming oxidized by free radicals, which otherwise may build up in arteries causing them damage

One last fact: Half a cup of plums contains around 40 Calories.

So, are you already craving them? You should! πŸ˜‰
