Lacking energy, craving sweets, and as a result, not getting all needed nutrition made me feel even more powerless and guilty. The way to fuel my body and keep my cravings under control was out there somewhere—I just was not able to see it. Then, completely by mistake, I soaked dates instead of dried figs to make my favorite stuffed figs candies. Obviously, I had an urgent need to use them somehow—and this recipe came alive.
