Figs are high in minerals and fiber. They contain good levels of potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and manganese. Figs are among the most highly alkaline foods, making them useful in balancing the PH of the body.
 
 

Five tips for incorporating figs into your diet:

  • Add figs to baked goods such as muffins, cakes or muesli bars.
  • Poach figs in red wine or fruit juice and serve with organic Greek yogurt.
  • Stuff fresh figs with goat cheese and chopped almonds. Serve as an appetizer or dessert.
  • Add fresh figs to oatmeal, porridge or breakfast cereal.
  • Make fig butter by boiling figs in fruit juice until soft. When all liquid has been absorbed, place mixture in a food processor and blend until smooth. Use as a spread on rice cakes, toast or crackers.
