Plum is a wonderful autumnal fruit. Plums contain a huge number of vitamins C, A, group B, besides organic acids, sugars, mineral salts.
Plum stimulates appetite, improves digestion, increases peristalsis, exerts a diuretic effect. Fruits can be eaten to strengthen the capillaries and as a decongestant (to them a lot of potassium). U.S. scientists claim that the plum is not a lesser degree than bananas, are able to deal with a bad mood. If you want to feel better you need to eat (at one time!) half a kilogram of plums. Or drink a glass of prune juice. It should only be remembered for their laxative effect.
Eat plenty fresh plums, while there is a wide choice, but if you get tired, then plums can be cooked as fast and easy pie. One «dough up» and another «dough down».

Eggplant is a vegetable that does not contain large amounts of vitamins and minerals, but at the same time, the beneficial properties of eggplant is different. Eggplant has beneficial effects on the process of human digestion due to its delicate cellulose. Due to the low carbohydrate content of eggplant, they are not high in calories and therefore are suitable for those, who have diabetes and superfluous weight.
Here’s my recipe of eggplant paste.
3 large eggplants
3 red sweet peppers,
2 cloves garlic,
half a white onion,
salt and freshly ground black pepper, olive oil.
Rub with olive oil eggplant and peppers, pierce them with a fork and spread on a baking sheet. Put in preheated oven to 180 degrees for 30 minutes. Take out, give them time to be cool.
Meanwhile pour boiling water over tomatoes, not more than for 3 minutes, take out and clean the skin and seeds. In a blender mashed tomato with olive oil and pour the mass into a bowl.
Clean the eggplants and peppers from the skin, take out the seeds from peppers.
Separately set them in a blender and just chop!
Finely cut the onions. Press the garlic. All the ingredients are put together and filled with a good olive oil (five tablespoons), salt and freshly ground pepper according to your taste. Mix gently, put in container and refrigerate.
I especially recommend the paste with the dried brown bread, that was dried in a toaster or on the frying pan.
Very dietary product.
