This Week's Hidden Healthy Hit: Peaches

This week I was talking with my dear friend and co-worker and we commented that peaches were on sale this week at Market Street. Both of us immediately started in on the delight of eating a deliciously ripe peach on a perfect Texas summer day. We day dreamed about the delectable soft peach you use your lips to "bite" into it and at that very moment, a ton of sweet juice bursts out and runs down your face and arm. Needless to say, we both immediately put peaches on our shopping list.
Here are a few things you may not know about peaches:
  • Peaches are part of the rose family.
  • Peaches can be ripened in a brown paper bag.
  • Peaches have a NuVal score of 99
  • Peaches are great on the grill. Read more about grilling fruit (Let's Take it Outside! Healthy Grilling)from our monthly Health and Wellness Articles.
  • Peaches are on sale this week at Market Street ($0.67/lb)
Have a great peach story or recipe? Let's hear it!
