     Dried Fruit 
 
 
Health Benefit: By adding a 1/4 cup of dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, or figs) to your diet counts as one of the two to four servings of fruit that you are suppose to be getting each day.
 
Try It: Dried fruit is more concentrated than fresh which makes it sweeter.  This can help satisfy a sweet craving that is healthy by using the dried cranberries with a savory chicken salad.  You can also stir in some pecans for a extra crunch and serve it all on a whole-grain hamburger bun with fresh lettuce.
