Food of the Month: PEACHES

One of our favorite things about summer time is PEACHES, PEACHES AND MORE PEACHES! There's nothing like a perfectly ripe peach on a hot summer's day. We love them so much that while we eat them, we can't stop singing "Millions of Peaches, PEACHES for me. Millions of Peaches, peaches for free!"

Not only are peaches the tastiest summer stone fruit, they're also highly nutritious and surprisingly low in calories!

Did you know that peaches are high in potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber? Not only are they good to eat, you can also add peach puree to your natural homemade beauty mask as Vitamin A and C are great skin moisturizers!

Peaches are a natural stress-reliever and tend to have a positive effect on anxiety. When you think about it, have you ever felt stressed while eating a peach? We didn't think so. Not to mention the fact that they're also known to calm an upset stomach. Next time you're feeling stressed out and a bit woozy, bite into a peach and let your stress and nausea float away.

Peaches are great at supporting weightless as most medium sized peaches are about 58 calories but due to all the fiber, they make you feel full. Not to mention the fact that they help fight against obesity related diseases like diabetes and heart diseases this is because peaches are loaded with antioxidants.

Normally at this point in our food of the month post, we'd list a few easy recipes and ways to incorporate the food of the month into your diet. But this month, we can confidently say that the best way to eat a peach is to simply eat it. Whether you just devour it whole or cut it up into wedges, the choice is yours, but whatever you do eat millions of peaches this summer!
