Enjoy Figs in your Meals and/or Snacks

Dried figs are readily available all the time usually in the produce section of the grocery store where many other dried fruits are stocked. Many probably don’t think of eating them unless they are in Fig Newtons! There are other healthier ways to eat them and they will add a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6 and more, as well as some calcium and iron to your diet! Figs can be added to any whole grain breakfast porridge for some sweetness and texture. They can also be poached in a little juice or red wine and served with low-fat yogurt or low-fat frozen desserts. Add figs chopped to a salad too. In a blender, puree 2 cups of dried figs with ¾ cup water and 2 tsp vanilla and use the puree for an excellent replacement for fat in baked good recipes! Try them this holiday season!
