Fig Facts

When I was a kid, living in Virginia, we had a HUGE Fig tree in our neighborhood.. I remember eating so many figs, I would make myself sick. : ) good times

I was curious to learn more about what I used to chow down on. Actually, I'd still eat Figs until I was sick if I had my own Fig tree. haha
  • Figs are fat-free, sodium-free and, like other plant foods, cholesterol-free.(source)
  • Figs have the highest overall mineral content of all common fruits. (source)
Something new: Religion and FOOD
  • The fig is one of the two sacred trees in Islam (source).

I thought that was interesting.
Hmm I actually don't HAVE a Fig recipe. Any suggestions? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I have to cut it short for you guys tonight.. It's been a crazy day.. I went to get my hair colored to blonde tonight (my natural color) and it took over 3 HOURS. I'm not blonde now either. Blah it's along story. Either way it's about my bed time folks. Talk with you all tomorrow!! : ) Night night
