    I don’t eat to much dried fruit because it is kind of constipating :) The only dried fruit that I really like are dates, goji berries, dried lychees,and dried mango. I try to get in a handful of goji berries every day because of their protein.

    Dried fruit is great for traveling, but I usually eat fruit fresh otherwise. Although last year, my first year with a dehydrator, I had a lot of fun dehydrating fruits that were in season and carrying them with me whenever I left the house. I’m sure that’ll happen again after winter. I also like raisins, dates and goji berries just about anytime. How about you?

    I love dried fruit, but I try to use it sparingly. I use it for sweetness and/or texture, like when I add dates or raisins to a recipe. I also like to add goji berries to trail mix on the go, and I eat dried figs a lot because their season is so short. Figs are my favorite fruit, so I have to have them year-round.

    I really enjoy organic unsulfured dried apricots, as well as dried apples and figs. But the minute I read humanimal’s comment, I stopped snacking on my apricots!!

    Humanimal: I always thought bananas were constipating, that’s why I don’t eat them. I guess you would be the expert on setting this thought of mine. Are they fine for you? Thanks :)

    They are more than just fine! Bananas are a wonderful fruit are very nutritious. They are fruit that I eat the most of during the day. The key to eating bananas is eating very ripe and soft. If you were to eat a banana that was hard and yellow, that thing would sit in your stomach for quite a while. In ripe bananas the starch has broken down into an easily digestible sugar. Another thing which most people dont know is bananas help those that are experiencing constipation and diarrhea. So eat some soft ripe and sweet bananas. I also have a few tips: 1)before you eat you bananas place them in a warm area for a couple hrs, later come back and gently massage each banana, then get ready to eat. Keeping them in a warm place of course made them nice and warm (warm bananas taste very good) and massages them predigests them making it easier on your stomach. 2)Pick bananas that are soft and that have many large and dark spots on them.3) Dont buy bananas that are almost black unless you want some banana alcohol. I learned this by getting a little tipsy after eating a few over ripe bananas:)

    Enjoy! and take it easy on those dried fruits :)

    Raisins are the most common type, followed by dates, prunes, figs and apricots. Other varieties of dried fruit are also available, sometimes in candied form (sugar coated). These include mangoes, pineapples, cranberries, bananas and apples.

    Dried fruits are my second love. dried fruit contains about everything found in the original fruits (polyphenols included), except the water. So it's true they have a higher sugar/volume ratio, but they still make a better snack than many other crappy stuff.

     Yes, I think dry fruits are best for people going to gym as they are rich in protein and fiber. I recently tried dry fruits from www.happilo.com and they were amazing!

    Goji berries are the best! Mix those with dried mango and I'm in heaven.
