P Pack a big punch of flavor and sweetness in salads, quinoa and other staples with dried cranberries. Yes they are quite high in sugar, however the trick is to cut them up into teeny pieces. Use either a good knife on a cutting board to chop them up or put them in your food processor. That way you’ll get a taste of them in every bite. The flavor will go a long way with very little sugar and calories, and the bright red color adds a visual attractiveness to your food too!
