Peaches

It’s peach season! Peaches are a delicious source of fibre (1.9 g, per medium peach), and beta carotene (159 mcg), and clock in at only about 38 calories.

Enjoy them straight-up, in a smoothie, grilled or roasted, in salsa or salad, cut-up and added to yoghurt or cereal, or in a multitude of baked goods.

Want to speed up the ripening process when you bring home a basket of rock-hard peaches? Place them in a paper bag with a banana, close the bag and leave at room temperature at least overnight. Ripening time will vary depending on how ripe your peaches are to begin with, room temperature, and banana ripeness.
