Figs the miracle fruit

27 Jun

figs.jpgYesterday I bought some fresh figs from the supermarket. I asked where they got the fruit from and the storekeeper said he believed it is from the US.  I know figs is a Mediterranean staple.  

Figs are thought to be originally from small Asia and are one of the first fruits cultivated ever.  However, the fruit was so good and very sweet. I loved the texture then I read up on it.  This fruit is a dynamite of nutrients.  It is high in fibre, high in calcium, promotes good sleep, lowers blood pressure,  helps the brain and all kind of good stuff but the draw back is it is also high in calories because of its sugar content.   If you are going to try it you cannot eat a lot or you might gain instead of lose weight. Always a drawback eh!
It is said that humans could live on Figs alone as a source of food — such is the goodness and nutrition in the fruit!
