Tantalizing Tempeh with Prunes

Prunes can help you prevent or delay bone loss.  You see, as we get older, lower estrogen levels can lead to inflammation and oxidative stress.  Those can increase bone loss and fractures.  
Prunes are rich in minerals, vitamin K, phenolic compounds, and dietary fiber.  All of those can combat oxidative stress and inflammation.
