In the past I have found myself in a routine where I only make 2 or 3 different meals for dinner. Then a new cookbook will come along, I’ll try out some recipes and absolutely love the new variety of food. But sure enough, I slowly trickle back to the same-old meals that I was making originally. Now that I have moved and am busy with the tasks that come with moving to a new city, I can see myself getting into the old habit of routine meals. So, to fight back against normality, I have partnered with the California Prune Board to bring a new and easy twist to dinner: Savoury Meatballs with Orange and Prune Glaze.
The prunes provide a sweet flavour as an alternative to using dates or brown sugar. The benefit of these prunes is explained in research that shows that a serving of about 5 California prunes helps slow bone loss in postmenopausal women. More research for this population is coming as The California Prune industry is sponsoring its largest clinical trial on the impact of prunes on bone density. In addition to helping support healthy bones, California Prunes can benefit heart and digestive health. The low glycemic index and dietary fibre in prunes can help manage blood sugar levels.
So if you find yourself in a dinner rut, give this new recipe a try and be pleased that you are not only benefiting your taste buds but also your health.
