My friend K has the best backyard ever. She's got tons of fruit trees and her own little organic farm going on there. That's totally my dream, too bad I have an anti-green thumb. Never had much luck with the whole gardening thing, but definitely admire those that do. Last night, was my lucky night. She dropped off a whole bag of goodies including these beautiful figs. Figs have a sweet earthiness that I absolutely adore. They're very versatile, being excellent in both savory and sweet dishes. This morning I decided to go the sweet route by making myself a pre-yoga smoothie. A perfectly light meal full of vitamins, protein and anti-oxidants. The perfect way to start your day.
