It’s the middle of the afternoon, your head is slowly drifting towards your desk and not even a giant iced coffee can save you from your afternoon slump. If this sounds familiar, you may want to ditch the caffeine and grab a peach instead.
Benefits of Peaches: They are loaded with potassium, a vital nutrient for fighting fatigue. Potassium also helps fight against those painful muscle cramps or you may get in your feet and legs when sitting at your desk all day. Just one large peach has 185 milligrams of potassium and less than 70 calories, according to the USDA national nutrient database.
Pick it Out: First, you want to look for a peach without any bruises or marks. Next, smell the peach; it should give off a strong sweet scent. Finally, give the peach a squeeze; it should give a little. Also, remember peaches have a shorter shelf life than other fruit, so try and enjoy your peaches within a few days of purchasing.
Enjoy it: Next time you have the grill fired up for your main meal, throw a few peach slices on too. Grill for about ten minutes and top with Sugar Free Cool Whip for a healthy summer dessert.
