As a registered dietitian nutritionist with the grocery store Safeway, I have partnered with California Figs for different ways to enjoy this delicious fruit. Figs are somewhat of a forgotten fruit, but are very nutritious. They contain the most calcium, iron and potassium of any other common fruit. Also, three to five California figs provide 5 grams of soluble fiber which is a prebiotic fiber that helps the growth of good bacteria. This good bacteria promotes a healthy gut which makes for a healthier you.
Sounds like a good deal, right? Well, if you want to get started with including figs in your diet, I have two delicious recipes for you with one using fresh figs and the other using dry figs. Watch the video above to see me demonstrate both of these easy recipes so you can try a mouthwatering way to start eating figs today.
