This week, we’re head-over-heels-giddy about freeze-dried fruit. Who doesn’t love fruit, right? And dried fruit is just about as sweetly-good as candy, but as we all know, dried fruit can pack some serious calories. Just one cup of raisins boasts almost 500 calories! Yikes!
But freeze-dried fruit has all of the sweetness and nutrients of fresh and dried fruit at just a fraction of the calories. Trader Joe’s has a pretty plentiful supply of freeze-dried goodies like bananas, strawberries, and pineapple, and the company Just Tomatoes is wildly popular, too.
The texture might be something to get used to (think airy), but when you start chomping, we think this will be your next fave healthy snack. Eat it straight out of the bag, top on a yogurt, jazz-up your morning cereal with it — the possibilities are endless.
