The physical and emotional demands of working in entertainment can wreak havoc on your immune system and health. Find yourself sneezing or coughing more than once or twice a year? Add figs to your diet!
Turkish stevedores, famous for their strength, regularly dined on figs. Today, they can be found in fresh, dried, boiled, or even in cake forms! Known as part of a mediterranean diet, figs were introduced to the Americas by Spanish explorers. They are still respected as a concentrated form of muscular energy, since they are easily digested.
Their medicinal value is a homeopathic remedy for the common cold, flu, or cough. Packed with vitamins E, B6, B1 and B2, figs are also soothing to the bronchial passages and digestive tract. Dried figs that are rehydrated by being boiled in milk (preferable non dairy) actually fight infections!
Load up on your vitamins and keep your body in optimum health so you can stay focused on what matters most - your career! And now you can do that with a sweet treat.
