bring on the dried fruit
Keep those dried fruits - you know, the ones that are considered nature’s gifts and were on your party platter. Did you know you could dry your own fruits? If you are not interested in the dehydrating process, consider already dried fruits often. They are loaded with micronutrients, fiber and antioxidants! Raisins, Dates, Prunes, Figs, Apricots and more are already dehydrated. Also, these fruits can be preserved longer than fresh fruit – less throw away. Keep in mind – dried fruit contains up to 3.5 times the fiber, vitamins and minerals of fresh fruit!
