June is here and it’s a perfect time to eat healthy. One great food to include this month is the fig. “Figs are 80 percent higher in potassium than bananas and are extremely easy to digest. They also have more iron than most other fruits and are extremely high in magnesium,” The Los Angeles Times reports. “All of this for about 20 to 40 calories per fig. No wonder they are often called nature’s most nearly perfect fruit.”
You can eat figs dried as a stand-alone snack, and mix them with other foods to add some flavor. Here are 6 other superfoods you can eat during June too. You can learn more about each one at The Huffington Post.
