Why I love figs

Fresh or dried. Calmyrna or Black Mission. Figs are one of my all time favorite fruits.

Being a raw foodie, I found in my earlier days that dried figs fulfilled my cravings for heartier, denser and sweeter foods. The same satisfaction I would get from a sweet cake or dessert after a nice meal. With figs I would still feel good after eating without any adverse effects, or guilt for that matter!

Figs are so nutritionally sound and are perfect just as they are, eaten fresh.

Containing calcium, zinc and iron, and concentrated more so in their dried form, figs make for a great snack or addition to a raw dessert.

Slice them into a salad paired with cashews or a cashew "cream" sauce, add them to a refreshing fruit salad - great with raspberries, incorporate them into a fruit & nut bar such as walnuts and dates or cranberries.

Fresh ones are found seasonally around this time of year. Take advantage of them while they last. They may be gone on your next trip to the grocery store!
