Thank you posted by Msara on 1st June 2017 at 9:10 pm Yes however prunes are on the ‘avoid list’ for FODMAP. So if you react to those tyoes of food they are best avoided. Medjool dates are a good alternative natural sweetener. posted by NannyA on 1st June 2017 at 9:48 pm That’s great, thank you. posted by insect on 2nd June 2017 at 3:58 pm My DH eats lots of these weekly. He chops them to add to morning porridge as well as munching them in the afternoons along with an apple. posted by Firefox7275 on 9th June 2017 at 7:44 pm Yes if you stick to recommended serving sizes (30g dried fruit in the UK), and don’t have too often because they are very high in sugar. Dr Mosley recommends reducing all sugar and sweeteners, and focusing on veg not fruit. It is notable that there are only two ‘treat’ recipes and suggested snacks are savoury (eg. veg sticks/ nuts). HTH! posted by insect on 9th June 2017 at 9:32 pm I find fruit and veg. difficult to eat but my husband eats a good mix of everything that we can buy on the markets. Most of our meals are cooked from scratch but I have fads ……. posted by Flame on 18th June 2017 at 5:50 am Just checking my FODMAP list and dates are a no-go if you have an intolerance to that type of sugar….
