Peaches are one of my favorite summer snacks; it is the one fruit that I miss in the cold winter months. In addition to being beautiful, fragrant, and delicious, they are rich in vitamins A and C. Peaches can brighten up a salad, add flavor to a smoothie, or you can just enjoy them on the go. Peaches are filled with antioxidants which are necessary for optimal skin health. Here at Lifted, we genuinely believe that what we put into our bodies reflects on our skin, like a mirror.
Vitamins A and C in peaches play a huge role in eliminating free radical damage, normalize oil production, lighten hyperpigmentation, and brighten the skin, all the things that we want for a youthful glow! A raw medium-sized peach has roughly 6% of your daily vitamin A and 15% of vitamin C. Bonus: they are only 50 calories!! This is one sweet treat that you should indulge in while they are in season.
Recipe – Grilled Peaches with Buffalo Mozzarella
- Half the peach and remove the seed.
- Brush them with a little oil to prevent sticking on the grill.
- Place them cut side down on the grill and grill until you see char marks and the fruit softens.
- Flip them over and add the buffalo mozzarella into the heart of the fruit. Allow the cheese to melt and the fruit to continue to soften.
