4. Dried Fruits
Fruits are natural – they’ve got to be good for you – right? Here’s some news, cyanide is natural and you’re not going to be snacking on that anytime soon (we hope). You reach for a handful of raisins or a few pieces of dried mango to satisfy your sweet tooth – however there’s a really good reason they are so satisfying – it’s the sugar. These dried fruits are a better option than candy, since they have a good amount of fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Be careful with the portions, however — even a small portion carries a high-calorie, high-sugar punch – and that can mean weight gain if you’re not careful.
