Welcome to the HEALTHY LIVING SERIES...the star today is....


STARPOWER- Figs are one of the most alkaline foods on Earth and are immensely helpful in setting right a skewed up system by restoring the ph balance,they are also great for lowering Blood pressure and are high fiber too.The leaves are edible and are very good for diabetics, figs are helpful for those on a weight loss diet as they can easily be substituted for sugar.

Fresh figs are difficult to come by these days, when I was a child we had a neighbor in Dehradun who had figs growing in her backyard and once in a while she used to send them over in a little wicker basket atop a layer of fig leaves, deep purple smooth skin, juicy flesh and crunchy seeds, how we all loved them, I still remember how fragile they were and would bruise easily leaving behind deep stains on our clothes, I guess that is the reason they are so rarely available fresh but to enjoy its goodness all year round they can be purchased in the dried form and used as needed.

Best way to consume- Soak  a few overnight, consume first thing in the morning.

Figs are fried! I didn't know we could do that. Love Fig cookies but never made it at home. Great post! :)
