I have noticed that the times that I get irritated, frustrated or run down are the times where I have shut off including myself in the equation.
When I don’t pay attention to cues from my body or continue to ignore the things that feel really light and joyful to me instead choosing the list of what I ‘should ‘ be doing, I notice things can seem really heavy quickly.
So today I’m choosing for me. I wonder what wonderful things will show up?
Just a few notes on this wonderful fruit. The fig is
high in nutrients and fibre so they’re great for digestion and also known to support in
prevention of major health risks like heart disease and diabetes.
Figs are high in calcium and magnesium for musculoskeletal health along with iron, copper, antioxidants and vitamin K so anyone on blood thinners should be careful with how many they have.
Figs are also a focus of study for their effects on antitumour
activity and dermatitis so hopefully more good things will be discovered about
this wonderful fruit to report soon.
Fresh figs are the best option to consume as dried
figs have higher sugar levels.
It also helps that they are naturally sweet with low calories but should still be enjoyed in moderation.
It’s so versatile in the kitchen whether your eating raw or cooking. Some beautiful ways to enjoy figs are to eat them fresh, rocket and feta, through salad with pomegranates or on top of cake.
