GHS Tips to Look and Feel Good in September
According to our consultant dietitian Lisa Post, RD, figs offer a sweet way to include more fiber in your diet. Dried figs can be enjoyed fresh or in prepared dishes. Here are a few ways to incorporate figs into your next meal:
- Soak a handful of dried figs in balsamic vinegar for one hour. Drain, cut the figs in half and serve in a salad.
- Soak a handful of dried figs in orange juice for one hour. Drain, dice the figs and mix in with your favorite rice.
- Cut figs in half, drizzle a little honey on each half and top with crumbled pistachio nuts.
Lisa Wensley, an Eminence Organics Skin Care representative, suggests eating bright and colorful produce as part of your beauty routine. Greens, such as pears and green apples, calm inflammation in the skin; reds, including cranberries and pomegranates, aid circulation; purples are oxygen-rich and orange colors help repair sun damage.
