i posted this yesterday, subject prunes, lol, no one replied. so i thought if i labeled it dried fruit maybe i would get an answer.
are dried fruits allowed? prunes, rasins, dried apples, etc.
Dried fruits are typically very sugary. I'm not sure if maybe prunes are okay, but not raisans or dried apples. There is also a loss of nutrients in the drying process.
I would agree with Jessica. You should be very careful with dried fruit. I wouldn't say don't eat them but be very aware that dried fruits are both nutritionally dense and caloriclly dense. Read the labels and find out the serving/nutritional information. Like grapes, for example, dried fruit is tasty and small and convenient so it is so easy to eat too much.
thanks for your comments, i no that they are full of sugar, i just thought maybe the prunes having lots of fiber would be ok. i will not consume them. i really need to clean up my diet, not only for the challenge but for sake of getting into good eating habits.
No wi'm sad :( My favorite oatmeal has a small handful of raisins and dried cranberries...I could sacrifice the raisins, but I love dried cranberries. I also love putting dried cherries in my chicken salad. I suppose I can save these things for free day though :)
