High Fiber Sweet Braised Figs
Adding braised figs to your oatmeal, on fat-free cottage cheese or even onto a salad will make a sweet and stunning display that won’t disappoint. Not only are figs high in fiber that will keep you full, they are also loaded with potassium - a mineral important in controlling blood pressure.
