Like many of you, I've been more than a little "stuck" lately, if you know what I mean. In the last couple of weeks, I have been happy to achieve a regularity of about 2 trips a week to the throne. About 3 weeks ago I saw an ad for Sunsweet's "PlumSmart for Digestive Health" It showed happy people frolicking around in the sun, so instead of hearing "prune juice" and thinking "nursing home" it actually sounded pretty good.
So the next day I bought a jug of it. And it sat on my counter for 3 weeks. Yesterday my husband asked what it was, and if I was ever going to drink it. Somehow, I'd started thinking about nursing homes, and not happy frolicking people. I bit the bullet and had a nice big mug this morning. It was actually pretty good - it tasted like the grape juice I made last fall from our grapes, spiced with a little cinnamon. I heated it up and drank it warm. I was shocked to discover that even though I'd just made my biweekly trip to the throne last night, 2 hours after drinking the plum juice, I was making another visit. This was the first back-to-back visit I'd made in over 2 months!
I'm not usually in the habit of promoting brands of food, but this tasted good, and actually worked!
I'm going to go frolic in the snow now...
