Dietitian's Top (Gluten Free) Pick: Sunsweet Dried Apricots





This is one of my (Jennifer) favorite snacks! I love eating a small handful of dried apricots and a handful of natural almonds. The apricots add a sweet and chewy treat to the crunchy almonds and are a fantastic source of vitamin A, C, and fiber. Try mixing dried apricots, whole natural almonds, and your favorite dried cereal to make a healthy trail mix. Measure it out into little snack (about 3/4 cup per bag) and take them to work, school, or the movies with you for a nutrition packed snack that won’t add too many calories or fat. It’s no wonder why Sunsweet Dried Apricots are this Dietitian’s Top Pick!
