The Nutritious Fig
Did you know that figs can be part of almost any special diet, be it low fat, low sodium, high fiber, weight loss, diabetic or even the Mediterranean? Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and they are cholesterol-free too. Figs are high in fiber (good to combat constipation!) and have more dietary fiber per serving than any other common dried or fresh fruit. Figs also have very high mineral content. If only I had enough place in my house and if only the climate in our country permits, I would want to plant a couple of Fig trees and enjoy the fruits!
