Ingredient of the Day- Peaches

With it’s fuzzy soft red (sometimes orange) skin, mellow yellow flesh, and bright red seed. This tropical fruit is found growing in trees and is believed to originate from china. Starting from a beautiful violet blossom that develops into the bright red and orange fruit we all crave and love. Not to mention that peaches are packed with fiber, protein, potassium, and vitamin C. Making it the ideal fruit of the day.

For a delicious breakfast try eating fresh lowfat ricotta cheese with honey and fresh peaches. This is one of my friends favorites.

Happy Hunting.
