Just Peachy

August means peaches are in season!

Peaches are 80% water and a good source of fiber which makes them a good choice if your goal is to lose weight. 

The vitamin A in peaches are good for skin cells, vision, boosting immunity, and increasing white blood cells. 

The potassium in peaches aids in digestion, it helps muscles contract, sends nerve signals used for metabolism to be able to use fat, protein, and carbohydrates for energy.

Oh...remember a peach should smell like a peach. If it does not it will not have much flavor.  A little squeezable is best. If it is rock hard, but it in a paper bag until it ripens.
