A word on dried fruit: Yes it's fruit, it's natural and a few pieces of fresh fruit a day is a very good thing.

However dried fruit (as the name suggests....) has had all the water removed from it and what's left is the fruit in its most concentrated form.... and that means a pretty intense sugar hit too. Go for the fresh version, is what I tell my clients.

If you do veer into dried fruit territory now and again, have just a few (dates, figs, apricots...) and balance them out with a couple of nuts like almonds or walnuts.
