Lately my wife and I have been loving one of the world’s most portable snacks: dried fruit!
I know it may sound boring or to dry, but if you make good choices you can enjoy some delicious and healthy fruit that still retain just a touch of moisture.
My favorites have been apricots, dried plums, and figs. They are fruits that I rarely eat, contain tons of fiber, potassium and antioxidants and have no added sugar. That is a combination that is hard to pass up. Plus they last a long time if needed, are incredibly portable and satisfy that sweet-tooth.
You can get into trouble with them if you go overboard, but each serving is about 25 grams of carbs, which is very reasonable. There are other dried fruits out there (raisins anyone?), but most have tons of added sugar, or are dried to the point of being hard and crispy. I steer clear of these and recommend you do the same.
Simple, nutritious, and delicious these dried fruits can be a great addition to your diet and add some much needed variety to your fruit intake. Enjoy!
