Try Some Dried Mango

The other day Dr. Fuhrman’s wife, Lisa, handed me a bunch of dried fruits from Jaffe Bros. There were all sorts of things: strawberries, bananas, cantaloupes, currants and dried mango. I’ve never had dried mango before.

So, I took this package home with me:

 

And they were delicious! But, never—EVER—eat too many in one sitting because I PROMISE you, you'll need shoehorn to dislodge something from somewhere and a plunger to unclog something from somewhere else—OOF! All that fiber.

Speaking of dried fruit, a new study in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, has determined that dried organic fruit offers no EXTRA nutrients—via Jess Halliday of FoodNavigator.

The other disadvantage of dried fruit is that the sugar is more concentrated. You'll end up eating more fruit overall and consuming more sugar/calories.

Still, better than potato chips and the like.

You did soak the dried fruit I hope. Eating too much of it straight from the bag is not a great idea.
