Peachy Ideas and Healthy Ways to Enjoy!
Fragrant, juicy, and bursting with flavor, peaches are such delicious summertime fruits. Here are a few ways I have been enjoying and adding peaches into our diets, including:
- An arugula, peach and walnut salad with a balsamic vinaigrette,
- Overnight oats with sliced peaches and cinnamon; or,
- My new quick brunch idea of sliced peach and ricotta toast with some sprinkled walnuts and a drizzle of honey
The peach is a type of stone fruit that comes into season in the summertime, typically from May through September, with peak harvest in July and August.
Find local and organic peaches at a farmers market or grocery store near you. When choosing peaches at the market, look for colour. Give it a gentle squeeze and if not too soft, it is generally good to go 🙂
Also, please check out EWG’s 2021 list of clean fifteen and dirty dozen fruits and vegetables as peaches are generally on the dirty dozen list, therefore try to choose organic or local.
