I'm not so sure now if the dried fruit was such a good idea. I've been at work for a little over half the day, and i've already finished off the whole bag of pineapple =( That's more than 800 calories of lotsa sugar =/

I'm not sure if it was really that good for me either. On a normal day i'll eat somewhere between 4 and 12 airheads, lets take a look at the nutritional information;

Pineapple Per serving (i ate all "About 6" in the bag): Calories: 140, Fat: 0, Cholesterol: 0, Sodium 100mg (4%), Potassium 224mg (1%), Carbs: 34g [Fiber: 16g, Sugars 16g,] Protein 0g, Iron 2%.

Airhead: Calories: 60, Fat: 0, Sodium: 5mg (0%), Carb: 15g [Sugar: 13g], Protein: 0g.

So be eating the pineapple, i got a lot more calories, a lot more sodium, some more fiber, and an almost insignificant amount of potassium and iron, a fraction of what i get from my multi-vitamin and the Balance Bar i had in the morning.

So i'm confused, other than "being natural," how is the pineapple any better for me? I don't need the iron and potassium (as long as i keep taking my vitamins at least,) and other than that it seems about as junky as the airheads. (More fiber, but more sodium too, seems to balance out to me)
