I looked this up last night as a matter of fact Red grapes and cherries were the ones that stood out that are also Peat-safe. I was thinking of switching out oj for cherry juice for various reasons and am wondering now if I would need to supplement vit k if I went that route.

Liver might cover you for the vitamin K.

Dates and Raisins have the highest concentrations, out of Peat friendly fruits.
Red Grapes and Cherries are also high.
Watermelon, Orange Juice/Oranges, and Lychee have good amounts.
Mangoes and Tangerines have small amounts.

Yea but Dates and Raisins are dry. If you compare calories they are probably similar to other fruit listed.

I don't know if you're battling to keep weight off, but for most of us, the extra calories from dried fruits are a GOOD thing. With my hypothyroid, came weight LOSS, not weight gain. I'm 6'2" and I got down as low as 168 lbs, which is skeletal. What I like about this diet, is that I've been gaining back the weight that I've been slowly losing over the years. I've been on the diet 13 days, and have gained 3 lbs. I can't remember the last time I gained weight, despite having tried for the last 5 years.

Apparently, through biological transmutation, dates and raisins develop more salicyclic acid per calorie than the full water counterparts. This happens sometimes with dried fruit. I first read about in "Conscious Eating" by Gabriel Cousens, then read more about it in several other books.
