slowly falling in love with figs. i eat them with overnight oats (one of my favorite ways yum!) or just by themselves as a snack. if you make overnight oats and you mix in the oats the night before, when you eat your oats in the morning, the figs will be rehydrated and all plumped up and juicy! i’ve also heard from casey (wholeandhealthy on instagram), that putting them in water overnight does the trick as well. sadly, as you can see, I have yet to discover a way to make them look pretty hmm. i’ll be working on that c;
