I know that dried fruits are high on sugar, but in a granola mix, there should not be that many, I think. I'm just looking for a paleo breakfast I can eat everyday without getting fat from sugar. Can I eat granola everyday, even if it contains... (more)

I would say no. I try and stay away from dried fruit because it is SO high in carbs and sugars and yet SO easy to eat to much of. If you're having a problem getting yourself away from dried fruits in the morning, I would suggest maybe trying to... (more)

I know I've asked way too many questions like this, but this is one really getting to me. Pre-paleo, I'd eat 5-6 servings of fruit a day and 2 or 3 chocolate bars. Only now do I realize the amount of sugar i was consuming. ever since going... (more)

How long have you been Paleo? Give it months before evaluating if it works for you. Figure out if you are getting enough fats, protein and complex carbs. In my case I lowered my fruit consumption to an apple, banana or grapefruit, no more than... (more)

I am trying to think of more snack type ideas and one I want to try is Fruit Roll Ups. Has anyone experienced making these in either a dehydrator or the oven? Are there any great recipes; I have only found some that contain fruit, cinnamon and... (more)

Yes, I have made these in my dehydrator. You can do a similar thing with yogurt. All you need is the sheets for your dehydrator (instead of just the porous grates). Honestly, there are so many recipes and possibilities, that it's not worth... (more)

Whenever I eat dried cranberries (raisins and berries too...) I get bad gas and some bloating. Same thing happens when I eat nuts such as almonds, walnuts etc... The problem is, without nuts and dried fruit, my snack options are so limited and... (more)

Yes, for different reasons, both dried fruit and nuts cause gas. (Google FODMAPs). I am very gas-prone so I avoid both. As for snacks general approach is to eat big enough meals that I don't need snacks. But some options might be: 1/2 an... (more)

Sulphites? They're used in some dried apricots. But any high availability carb including dried fruit will increase bp.

This is in my head because I spend all day with a toddler. Our pediatrician recommended raisins for iron. Why not grapes? I've noticed other dried fruits saying they were high in iron too on the package. I'm confused. Update: 2 years later,... (more)

Only because like anything else, when you dry it you drive out the water content. The size goes down and it becomes a lot easier for us to eat a whole lot more of the item. Essentially the serving size becomes more dense with the original... (more)

I just found this wonderful online company, but unfortunately most of their products are candy and nuts. However, they do offer a multitude of freeze dried fruits and veggies. Plus they have dried coconut (unsweetened!) too! Win! So I got a... (more)

When I first started Paleo, I was told that all fruits are considered "cheats". I continued to eat fruit anyways. For awhile I stopped eating fruit. Lately as I've gotten back into fruit eating...I've noticed MASSIVE insulin spikes...to the degree... (more)

Not a cheat but a treat. Fruit is one option in my toolbox to help keep me happy and on the path.

Does dried fruit fit in with the Paleo diet? I understand it is calorie-dense due to the lack of water, but it seems reasonable that our ancestors may have used drying as a form of preservation. I recently took dried apricot slices and soaked... (more)

Dried fruit is great! But... It is quite easy to down a HUGE whack of carbs with dried fruit. That is, you still have to watch yourself. I reserve dried fruit for times when food is scarce, like hiking and camping. I know that my body can handle... (more)

Some dried fruit is Sulfited. Is this safe? Or should I stay away from it? I know some sulfur is naturally occurring, like in asparagus, and we obviously just pass the sulfur, hence the sulfur smelling urine. Is sulfited kiwi ok?

Sulfites used in dried fruit can cause some problems with some people. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fy731 It's not metabolically useful in humans, but it's not problematic either. Inorganic sulfur isn't all that important from a human nutrition POV.... (more)

For more relevant answers and even a possibility of a real response give your diet prior to dried peaches and any other relevant history. Have you ever had dried fruit before? What has been your day to day BM's. Are you normally a morning goer... (more)

Dried fruit has a much higher concentration of sugar, since most of the water is pulled out of the fruit. So, if eating sugar can cause cravings, then dried fruit could certainly be sweet enough to do the same. I'd drop the trail mix and see if... (more)

Where I live, it is recommended to eat 6 pieces of fruit and vegetables per day. But I hear that many paleo people say that you should not eat very much fruit because there is sugar in it. How much do paleo-dieters recommend to eat? What about... (more)

Progress! It could have been worse. Take this as a lesson about dried fruit and chocolate. I avoid both, but I do have a bit of cocoa powder every once in awhile. I would also ease up on the crossfit and go for a few walks instead.
