Big News: Prunes Don't Suck

So I tried some prunes today. I thought I'd hate them. They were okay. Actually, they were kinda bland. I can live with that. So now I know I like prunes. Apparently they're full of crazy-good things.

Breakfast: Two eggs (one yolk), fruit smoothie (yogurt, banana, strawberry), whole grain bread, skim milk with whey protein.

Snack: Carrots. Apples. The company of six very silent 7th grade students. Seriously, they can't shut up during class, but have nothing to say during lunch. What is that?

Lunch: Salad (cup of spinach, cup of romaine mix, serving of red peppers, serving of grilled chicken, half a tomato, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Snack: Mixed nuts, raisins, and later on, 3 prunes.

Dinner: Bottom round steak, two servings of steamed broccoli, sharp cheddar cheese. Dark chocolate. Everything but the dark chocolate was eaten before 7:30.

So I had more fruit than I'm supposed to--but I don't think three prunes will break me. Oh, and did you know they're called "dried plums" instead of prunes? What's that about? When will raisins become "dried grapes", I wonder.

Anyway, check me out: all my blogs updated (or set to update for the day) before 9:00! I may get lots of sleep tonight!


  1. I always found it odd that you could buy "prune juice" do you juice a dried fruit?

  2. Okay, and you amaze me with your mind again. I never even thought of that.
