Can I eat dried fruit for breakfast everyday?

I know that dried fruits are high on sugar, but in a granola mix, there should not be that many, I think. I'm just looking for a paleo breakfast I can eat everyday without getting fat from sugar. Can I eat granola everyday, even if it contains dried fruit? If not, are there any other paleo breakfasts I can eat everyday (i've found that a lot of paleo breakfasts are muffins or such, that is probably not healthy to eat everyday)?

I saw a post with paleo granola that contained nuts and dried fruits and some paleo flour. I just don't really like meat for breakfast, and eggs don't keep me full until lunch (with fruit they do, but I hear you should not eat too many of those, and I eat them for my lunch too.)

The paleomg link I have tried, and there are tons of unhealthy baked goods in there. I was looking for something I could eat every single day. I'll look into the other links, thanks for answering.

I would say no. I try and stay away from dried fruit because it is SO high in carbs and sugars and yet SO easy to eat to much of. If you're having a problem getting yourself away from dried fruits in the morning, I would suggest maybe trying to wean off of them. Have a breakfast of an egg, some nuts, and some dried fruits. Maybe some vegetables would be nice? But I do highly suggest getting yourself away from dried fruits except for the occasional treat. It's hard but when I dropped fruit, I lost an extra 3 pounds and felt a LOT more energetic. Give it a try and good luck!

I hope this helps.

I can eat a bag of dried apricots in a sitting, but cannot eat the equivalent number of fresh apricots. Controlling portions is key if you really are set on dried fruit (which you seem to be, as you really just want validation of what you're doing).

You are aware granola is made up of grains right? It is composed of oats (a grain), brown sugar (sugar), and honey (more sugar). It is not even remotely paleo. Actually the day granola is paleo we might as well all go back to eating special K cereal with reduced fat milk with sugar and a glass of concentrated orange juice and leave the paleo diet for good.

You say you want breakfast without sugar? Easiest thing in the world. They're called eggs, you can do all kinds of things with them. Sausage is good too, the natural ones with just meat, salt and spices. Bacon if you're into that. I like vegetables in almost every meal. Some days I have eaten smoked herring or portuguese sardines for breakfast, not bad. Leftover beef, lamb or chicken is good too. Most fruits are fine, as long as you don't go crazy on them.

Can you? Sure. Should you? Probably not. Boxed gronolas usually have high sugar content especially with dried fruit -- just read the label....

Try doing a google search for paleo breakfast ideas...
