SKIP: Dried Fruit
Bits of fruit can add plenty of tang and crunch to your salad, but choose your fruit wisely. Dried cranberries for example seem healthy, but guess again. A serving of dried, sugar-sweetened cranberries is merely one-third of a cup, and with that you get 130 calories and over 30g of carbohydrates (the equivalent of 2 slices of white bread)!
A smarter way to go: Chop up a whole medium-size green apple for bursts of sweet, fruity flavor and only 80 calories.Back to top
