Honey Fig Toast on Sourdough

Figs and honey have an incredible history and holistic properties that make their flavors remain timeless. This sourdough toast is an alluring bite of tangy sweetness with a touch of earthy notes. With a natural source of protein, soluble fiber, and carbohydrates that convert to sustainable energy, this simple breakfast has a profound presence.

Honey contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which can help support and improve the digestive system and boost immunity. Even more, it has antiseptic properties that can inhibit the growth of certain kinds of bacteria. Finally, it contains antimicrobial properties that can help fight bacteria that cause sore throats. Figs are not only juicy with historical stories, but they’re also packed with health benefits. So, live it up like Cleopatra or the Greeks and enjoy these delectable beauties. Eating them daily can increase your intake of minerals, calcium, and potassium. Figs continue to get a standing ovation for their source of fiber(insoluble & soluble), potassium, manganese, and vitamin B6. Even more, they have soluble fiber such as pectin, which is prebiotic!
