There is nothing quite like the sweet taste and chewy texture of fresh figs. As the fruit of the Ficus tree, figs come in a variety of colors and textures and offer a tasty treat that is as good for you as it is good to eat. One medium size fig has about 40 calories and is high in dietary fiber. Figs are also high in potassium which can be beneficial in helping lower and control blood pressure. For those looking to lose a little weight, the fiber in figs can help you feel full and satisfied longer, making it easier to avoid high calorie filler foods.
