Peach Perks

by Jenn Tricot July 29, 2019

Peaches are great on its own, but even better when added to smoothies, desserts and salads! They can be eaten raw, baked, grilled, broiled, or sautéed in your diet meal plan while keeping it delicious and sweet! They’re a big summer fruit, with tons of nutritional perks and benefits. 

Peaches can help aid heart health and lower risk factors of heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A major perk of a peach being a summer fruit, is how it can help keep your skin protected from sun damage, while keeping it moisturized and have a glow.
