What's the better choice here?  I love dried cherries, which are benificial for me,  but most of those which I find have added sugar.  I eat so many in my salads I can't really  do the speciality ones without sugar at  the HFS... I just buy them in bulk at the quasi health food store.. but they  have added sugar.. OR... I  could do  apples, which are not benificials for me but rather neutral... so that is the question:  do I do the benificial cherries with added sugar,  or the neutral apple in my salad, which is  just a neutral? any thoughts?

depending on the source of the sugar added...
think I d prefer the apple if I were a secretor.

You could try a third option, which is to make a smoothie out of frozen, unsweetened cherries and black cherry juice.  (You could also add other beneficial fruits, too.)

Another issue to consider in addition to the sugar is if the dried cherries you have been buying are organic? If not, be aware that they are number 7 on the list of highest pesticide load.

Apples are number 2 on the list.

I do not think these are organic.  These are bulk dried cherries from The Fresh Market.  When I looked on the back, I did see sugar was added.  I don't see any mention of organic.  

As for the apples, I have been buying organic.

I am  using the apples/ cherries in a salad every day for lunch.  I think I'll just use bananas instead, which are also highly benificial for me on the arthritis  diet for O's.... I think I'm scared of the cherries now.. !

Hey MoDon, thanks for the link to the pesticided up foods  
I know some time ago, I bought some green peppers and apples from Kroger...conventional grown. Within about 2 min of eating the pepper, my sinuses started bothering me. that struck me funny as it never had before. i wondered about the pesticide content, got on TB4 and checked the peppers and apples......both high pesticide possibilities.......tossed them both in the trash.

If the cherries are washed in baking soda and lemon and rinsed well, are they any better for us? I am just wondering how much of the pesticide can be washed away on these fruits and vegetables?

really my question was about the added sugar, not the pesticides...

I suppose I can look into the HFS for natural ones, but they come in such small packages and are so expensive

Do you have a dehydrator? If so, you could buy unsweetened frozen cherries and make your own.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

At the IfHI conference Dr. Crinnion said that 90% of the pesticide load on bell peppers could be washed off using vinegar.

Washing with vinegar might work OK for other smooth skinned produce like apples and cherries too.

They may be more expensive because they are organic.

I love the dried organic cherries on my salad! They are soooo expensive.....sometimes I alternate with dried cranberries (organic).....oh, and, bananas on a salad? maybe with a mayo dressing and walnuts on butter lettuce.

lol... even though I'm tiny, I  need a LOT of food.. three dried cherries would be like a grain of sand on an entire beach in my stomach.. I'm really eating for taste rather than for health benifits here...  hope you get the point!

and yes, bananas with walnuts on romain letuce  .. lots of olive oil.. cayanne pepper and turmeric.. MmMM.. that's my lunch.. in a HUGE bowl..  I'm digging it

besides the salad, do you also eat protein, since you mentioned now following BTD and being a former vegetarian?

I have a piece of beef at least once a day MOST days... as of late, I've been eating more salads with  raw walnuts... LOTS...  and more grilled veggies on salads..  that's still the vegetarian in me that would rather have this than meat.. but I know how wonderful meat is for me, and I do love it, as well... for instance, both friday and saturday nights this weekend I had a small filet mignon.. just perfect!

when I have salads, I'm so generous with the nuts that  I'm sure I get enough protein.  And my weight has been fine.. actually I've been a little less stringent with my weight  of late.. I've decided I just want to be healthy, NOT just a certain weight.. I'll be careful not to let it inch up there, but I'm in the  way low section of normal weight.. so I have some room..
anyway, back to the  cherries vs. apples.... I just love the  dried cherries, but I still wonder if I'm better off doing the cherries which have sugar OR the apples, which are just a neutral for me..

You might look at the Eden Foods website and consider buying their canned tart cherries. (www.edenfoods.com) Expensive, yeah, but they are organic and sugar-free. The cherry juice is good for you too. I mix it with pineapple, elderberry and gerolsteiner for a nice hydrating and refreshing Edna's Berry Berry Good Soda.

When I go to the big city (Sudbury)I buy organic dried tart cherries.  No sugar added.  They are Yummilicious.
