If you haven’t discovered Medjool dates, you’ve got to run out and get some.  Don’t think of them as prunes.  Or, dried plums, whatever.  They are similar in nutrition, but taste so much better. These things relieve constipation naturally. With all the soluble fiber (the best kind) they keep things moving.  So, they’re a great compliment to a...
