  • Figs primal?

    Are figs primal?

  • #2
    Yes... I eat figs sometimes but I make sure they do not have added sugar. The black mission figs almost always have sugar added.

      Made In Nature Organic Calimyrna Figs, Sun-Dried and Unsulfured, 7-Ounce Bags (Pack of 6): Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

      How do I eat this? Take it out of the shell and just eat? (btw that's a ton of sugar and carbs)

        Yup! That's what I do. Figs also go really well with Manchego cheese.

          I actually have never had dried figs. I limit my consumption of dried fruit. It sticks to my teeth and it's also a really concentrated source of sugar. I love fresh figs though. They should be coming in season soon!

          @secretlobster: I've never had Manchego cheese, but have wanted to try it since I heard about it a few months ago. They've been pushing it hard at the Publix stores around here. It's $14/lb though, so I've been passing on it. Is it worth giving it a try?

            Sooo worth the try.

            With dried fig (or Adriatic Fig Spread) it would make my top 10 for a *last meal* item. Seriously. It's that good.

                Pull 'em off the tree, they are amazing.

                I figure anything that you can yank off a branch and munch on without worry is primal. That's what Grok would do.

                  I tasted Manchego cheese for the first time at Publix this weekend. Seriously! This may be the best cheese ever developed. <3

                  I'm going to buy some next trip to the store.

                    Slice your fresh figs, line in greased pan (I prefer glass) sprinkle w/ balsamic vinegar, bake @ 350 for 20 mins or longer until caramelized,
                    eat w/ your Menchego....Divine!!

                      Laksmi, I am going to try that.

                      The first figs have arrived here in Naples. Delicious. I like them fresh for breakfast with cream cheese. Kept me full for hours.

                        oooh Belforte I agree - ripe fresh figs with a lovely creamy cheese cannot be beaten! I used to eat cheese and dried fruit for breakfast but I find that dried fruit has too much sugar in it so I stick with the fresh and maybe some nuts....yum!

                          Just ate some black mission figs, wow they are delicious (never had them before). The reason for the figs is to balance the PH level since figs are supposed to be high alkaline.

                          Before going primal I had stomach acid issues, after going primal it went away but over the past few weeks, I've been decreasing my vegetable intake while increasing my meat intake. This caused the problem to come back and I noticed my ph level was low (6.2-6.4) when the problem occurs. Hopefully the figs and increased vegetable intake fixes the issue.

                            Fresh figs are a source of potassium and calcium. I love them right off the tree, and don't hate me but I live in a veritable suburban orchard - neighbors grow all kinds of fruits including figs, and we planted 30 fruit trees when we moved here. I've been munching on Pakistani mulberries, nectarines and plums. Peaches are ripening now, figs and guavas will be ready later in the summer, and of course you can't have an orchard without citrus in California - those will be ready in winter.

                            Pre-primal I did some canning of jams... figs with vanilla made the most decadent and delicious jam I ever made. Too bad that figs are highly perishable, so the fresh ones in stores are almost always underripe and not worth the $. Try your local farmer's markets if you live in milder climes.

                              Yum! I will have to try this. Fig season is almost here!

                              I can't think of any reason that fresh figs wouldn't be primal, do dried always have sugar added?
