One medium sized plum, aka a potassium-rich, bloat-buster– because it counteracts sodium and the puff that comes with it– has just 30 calories and is rich in vitamin C, as well as other antioxidants, like beta carotene, that protect your body. These powerful phytonutrients fend off damage from stress, pollution and even from poor food choices! So after a rough go on your body, eat this for the perfect plum-back! 😉

Did you know that plums are relatives of peaches and nectarines and that The United States has up to 100 varieties that vary in shape, size, color and taste?!
We like to call these little plum-bites ”refresher bites” since they perk you, your taste buds and your mood.
