Since figs hold moisture in baked goods, you may use half the amount of fig puree as you would use butter or oil.
Figs contain a wealth of beneficial nutrients including vitamin A, B1, B2, calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium and chlorine.
3 large fresh figs contain just about 140 calories and 5.5gms of dietary fiber. That's more fiber than a cup of cooked oatmeal or a slice of double fiber wheat bread.
Not only are they rich in fiber, they're also a great source of calcium as half a cup of milk.
Ounce for ounce, figs have more fiber than prunes and more potassium than bananas.
They are in season and I suggest you grab some days while you can for better skin, hair, bones, lowering of blood pressure, resolving constipation issues, helping with weight loss and much more....
C'mon, let's get fit with figs!
You're probably cooking the potatoes the wrong way.
A potatoes potassium and folate are concentrated in the skin, and cooking potatoes with the skin on also helps retaining their vitamin C!
Potato skin contains B vitamins, vitamin C, iron, calcium, potassium, and other nutrients. Potato skin also provides lots of fiber, about 2 grams per ounce. If you eat a medium baked potato, including the skin, you'll get nearly 4 grams of fiber, 2 milligrams of iron and 926 grams of potassium
So do put down the peeler, you don't need it. Just ensure you wash it thoroughly though.
Potatoes are NOT bad
