Plums

Plums, a relative of the peach and nectarine, is a small rounded fruit that comes in over 200 varieties, with skin colors ranging from red to purple, blue-black, green, yellow or amber. These juicy stone fruits have a low glycemic index, which means they are great for stabilizing blood sugar levels. They contain insoluble fiber, which is great for digestive health, and compounds like neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acid to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. Lowering this “bad” cholesterol lowers your risk of heart disease.
