Today’s trip to my favorite store, Trader Joe’s, was always going to include an array of fruits, vegetables, and nuts, because my mental, emotional, physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies thrive on them.
When I saw these on the shelf, I didn’t think or hesitate to put them in the cart. I knew they were meant for me.

Now for a new approach and insight into how much my relationship with food and my bodies has changed – I wanted to find out why they were meant for me. What did my intuition know that my brain didn’t?
A quick search revealed that fresh green figs are:
High in vitamins A and C
Rich in calcium, iron, and potassium
Even without knowing the science behind what I need right now, my tastebuds are excited. Fresh figs are a treat. If you haven’t tried them, see if they call you in the store.
