I’m a woman getting to be around the age where I care about my bones. The irony? Lactose intolerance appears to be another milestone that comes with this age! It’s not so bad that I can never have dairy, but let’s just say that if I ever do anything to offend you, you can seek your revenge by sending me an extra-cheese pizza. Recovering from a case of the milk ‘urps from my breakfast latte, in fact, I was very happy to see non-dairy sources of calcium covered on my favorite TV doctor show today.
Fresh figs are one of the world’s oldest known fruits, yet they’re often overlooked in today’s daily diets. This recipe offers an easy way to enjoy them—and the fiber, calcium and antioxidants they offer—as an unexpected breakfast treat or elegant party appetizer. Simply slice open, stuff with creamy bleu cheese, then top with a drizzle of agave and some pine nuts.
Need a snack to go? Pass on processed energy bars and make your own natural fruit and nut bars from pure, whole-food ingredients in line with the Paleo diet. Not only will you be sure you’re eating well, you’ll save on cost, too!
