A Little Bit About Peaches
Each peach is 80% to 90% water, and contains approximately 3 grams of fiber. The high-water/high fiber combination is very beneficial to the gastrointestinal system – it helps you stay regular.
Peaches also contain high levels of many cancer-fighting phytonutrients, and also have a low glycemic index – which keeps your energy levels balanced and makes you feel full longer between meals.
To ensure you get all the nutrition from the peach, don’t skip the fuzzy skin. A high percentage of the nutrients are contained in the skin.
According to the Environmental Working Group, peaches top the chart of fruits with high concentrations of pesticides. Therefore, buy organic peaches whenever possible.
