Day 6: Figs
I decided to make a yummy smoothie…
from the ripe figs I picked up this week…it’s been fun thinking up ways to eat them and shoot them with my iPhone, haha! I didn’t realize I would get this much enjoyment out of the process; it’s a trial and error for sure, but learning a lot!
Figs are so sweet and taste great on their own (you can eat the skin too), add them to a salad or throw them in a smoothie.
This one has bananas, figs, dates a small apple (or berries), chia seeds, sprinkle of cinnamon and almond milk.
Some awesome facts about figs:
- Eating a half a cup of figs gives you the same amount of calcium as drinking a half a cup of milk!
- Fig trees are a symbol of abundance, fertility and sweetness. They are considered a beauty food because of the antioxidants and hydration they provide.
- Eating figs can help you loose weight because they are full of fiber and help you feel full and satisfied while giving you energy!
What’s your favorite way to eat figs?
