I can’t even to being telling you how busy EDEN has been lately!! SOOO many changes are happening right now that I can hardly catch my breath! I miss you guys…  I just had to sneak in a quick recipe for you all until things settle down a bit and I return.

When times get hectic and busy it’s so easy to reach for something unhealthy to snack on. But during hectic times it’s so important to treat your body good so it can run around for you. Seriously, keep some good staples in your fridge for those busy times. Think about it, by the time you get in your car and go through a drive thru you could have already made yourself and eaten a healthy and nutritious snack, a snack that your body can turn into fuel to get you through the day.

You deserve the BEST don’t settle for anything less! So lucky us!! It’s fig season and EDEN has her very own FIG tree in her garden. It makes me smile:-) every time I look out my window and see that amazing beauty sunning herself waiting for me to come pluck her fruit. SIGH……..

Oh my goodness, the song September by Earth Wind and Fire just came on!! This song makes me think about those Friday afternoons driving around with the top down smiling and laughing as the sun-kissed our faces. In that moment we didn’t have a care in the world! So I’m going to turn it up so I can day-dream for a little bit and then tell you….

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

2 Large Mission figs quartered

3 Large strawberries quartered

1/4 C low-fat Ricotta cheese

1 Tbs raw honey (you can use less if you like)

1 Tbs raw pumpkin seeds (or pistachios)

*Directions

Cut each fig into four pieces.

Cut each strawberry into four pieces.

Scoop 1/4 C of ricotta into a bowl then top with figs, and strawberries.

Warm the honey up for a few seconds to make it easy to drizzle.

Drizzle the figs, strawberries, and ricotta with the honey.

Sprinkle the dish with pumpkin seeds.

That is it!! It is so simple, you now have a healthy, and nutritious snack to get you through your busy day.

*Makes 1 serving

  1. Glad to see you’re busy rather than hurt or sick! This is a great post workout recipe. As those glycogen storages deplete from exercise, this will create an insulin spike to help replenish the muscles. Best of all…it tastes GREAT. Thank you for sharing this simple, but healthy recipe.
