Celebrate National Peach Month

DCF 1.0

August is National Peach Month and peak season for delicious, local Palisade peaches. A large peach only has about 70 calories and contains 3 grams of fiber. Peaches are also a good source of vitamin A and C and are the second highest protein fruit with about 2 grams of protein per peach.

To pick the best peach, the flesh should have a slight give (use your whole hand, not just your fingertips to avoid bruising) and should have an even coloring. Don’t forget to smell it! A ripe peach should be fragrant.

Five Healthy and Tasty Ways to Eat Peaches:

1. Add Peaches to Your Salad

2. Blend it into a Smoothie

3. Make a Salsa

4. Cool Off with a Soup

5. Cure your Sweet Tooth with a Healthy Dessert

  1. I’m glad I came across the WnW program. Since I’ve started losing the weight and learning about nutrition I have a firmer resolve to get fit and healthy. Perhaps you could you update your blog more often? perhaps stories from members about their weight loss trials and triumphs with WnW?
