You are sitting on a beach on a distant Greek island. The sand is white and the sea is an endless jewel-toned blue. A waiter from a nearby cafe brings you a bowl of Greek yogurt and figs. He is tall, dark and handsome (hey, it’s my fantasy), but the yogurt with figs is far more interesting. You know that Greek yogurt keeps your blood sugar steady, and that figs are full of vitamins and minerals. A moment later you open your eyes. You are sitting at your kitchen table, not on a beach in Greece. What does it matter? The bowl of figs and yogurt is in front of you, and you are living the good life.

Recipe: Yogurt and Caramelized Figs


  • 2 small to medium fresh figs
  • 1 level tsp of honey
  • 3/4 cups 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp raw untoasted pumpkin seeds
  1. Cut the figs in half lengthwise and brush the cut side with the honey. Place the figs in a small, non-stick frying pan over low heat. Cook the figs just until the cut side is caramelized (be careful not to burn them)
  2. Place the Greek yogurt in a bowl and place the figs and pan juices over the yogurt. Sprinkle with the pumpkin seeds and serve.
