Tinned Fruits

by Pervs
(England)

Hello,
Are you able to eat tinned fruit in Juice? I'm pretty sure tinned fruit in syrup is definately out of the question but how about fruit in juice? The fruit seems to be very tasteless this time of the year and the peaches that are tinned are quite tasty. Please can you advise?


Hi Pervs,
we are no friends of tinned fruits and don't recommend them. The most of the tinned fruits contain a high amount of sugar for conservation - that is not appropriate for the cabbage soup diet.

There are of course some tinned fruit exceptions. Here in Germany some supermarkets offer high quality tinned fruits in 100 % fruit juice - sugarfree, e.g. pineapple slices. These kind of tinned fruits make an exception an can be used even for cabbage soup diet although nothing beats fresh fruits regarding the vitamine content...

Maybe you'll get them in UK too. If so, please use them only in limited quantities in combination with fresh fruits typical for the actual winter time (like oranges, tangerines) for best results. The oranges you may even press and drink as orange juice.

All the best,
Gabriela

no canned peaches on fruit diet day

I'm making a fruit salad to eat on fruit days
can i use canned peaches? And on vegetable days can i use olive oil and lemon on a salad


Please don't use canned peaches for the fruit salad,
only fresh fruits are recommended!

You may have 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon vinegar/lemon per day - while on cabbage soup diet. This might be used as base for a salad dressing, or use part of the oil to saute vegetables...

All the best,
Gabriela

canned fruits or fresh?

Are you allowed to eat canned fruit sweetened with splenda on your "fruit days"?

Hi Suzette,
No! Even canned fruits in natural juice are not recommended. Please use fresh fruits.
See here a similar thread: fruits days.

All the best,
