Dried apricots, nature's candy!

Dried apricots belong to the rose family (along with plums) and are rich in soluble fiber, which binds to fatty tissues and excretes fat from the body. They also contain non heme iron, cartenoids (antioxidants), potassium and vitamin A, which keeps our cells and immune system healthy and vibrant. One half cup provides 50% of our daily requirements of Vitamin A!

For those of you weary of the sugar content, dried fruits are actually great for the blood and eaten in small amounts strengthen the spleen. Just be careful to not go overboard, as with any food source.

Dried fruit loses some of its water soluble vitamins through the drying process however various other nutrients in dried fruit are greatly enhanced.
