Getting our fruit, any way we can

In an effort to get more fruit into our diets, we surround ourselves with a variety of fruit, including fresh, frozen and freeze-dried. Recently, we purchased a frozen tropical fruit bag from Gordon Food Service and were shocked at how fresh the pineapple and mango tasted once thawed a little bit. The papaya was so-so.

Why we like it:

  • No sugar added.
  • The fruit tastes like you just cut it yourself, so no mess or hassle with cutting up the pineapple, mango or papaya.
  • The fruit is already frozen, so it can’t go bad on your counter and attract fruit flies (unless you leave it out, of course).

In addition, I placed an order on Amazon.com for Funky Monkey freeze-dried fruit. I ordered the Variety Pack, which consists of Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, Jivealime and Purple Funk. So far, we’ve devoured a bag of Jivealime (freeze-dried pineapple and lime) and Carnaval Mix (freeze-dried banana, pineapple, apple and papaya).

Why we like them:

  • No sugar added.
  • You can taste the fruit since they aren’t coated with sugar.
  • They crunch, fulfilling any urges we might have to eat something crunchy that is unhealthy for us.
  • According to the package, there are three servings of fruit in a 1 oz. bag.
