Thyme & Black Mission Fig: Womens Oatmeal
Thyme and black mission fig in a hearty oatmeal set for an unruffled tone to the day. Wonderful for holding times of hormonal shifting and a busy mind. Due to their nutrient palate, this duo soothes the nerves and nourishes the feminine physique. Calcium and potassium from black mission fig provide muscle and bone support while thyme provides a relaxation to the feminine reproductive. Magnesium of the fig and sea salt also promote relaxation of the mind, body and spirit. A bit of copper in the fig also assists with iron absorption, iron helps to guide oxygen deeper into the cell. Pairing with thyme's relaxation to the lungs creates an opportunity for the chemistry of the body to allow soothing deep breaths.
Simple and practical with a touch of decadence, this recipe has guided me in more than one way. With love, I share it with you.
