The best thing I ate all week…
Fresh peaches! Oh my lanta. The smell of a ripe peach when you put it to your nose. When you bite into it and the juices are gushing down your face. The juicy peach is making you feel like a kindergartener with a piece of watermelon! I literally had peach juice running down my arms, it was so juicy!
<I felt like this cute little guy 🙂
If you haven’t eaten a fresh peach in the last week, seriously what are you waiting for?! 🙂
So I found myself saying “best thing I ate all week” after I devoured my first peach in a long time. I thought to myself why does this sound familiar. Bobby Flay’s show The Best Thing I Ever Ate. From now on every Friday (my intentions) I will share with you the best thing I ate all week!
Now that I have a new love for peaches, I wanted to know more. Here are some fun facts about the peach.
The Chinese have a saying “longevity peach” because they believed peaches prolonged life. They may be right. Peaches are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Beta-carotene, lytein, and lycopene are 3 types of anti-oxidants found in peaches (and they give them they’re pretty color). So not only are they tasty but with these 3 bad boys, peaches can help prevent cancer, heart disease, and muscular degeneration. To add to the glory of the peach, Pop-Eye may have done it the hard way. A peach has almost as much iron as spinach!
Peach or spinach? That’s easy! (Not that I don’t love my greens)
The best thing I ate all week was a big ripe juicy peach! Enjoy, but make sure you have a napkin though! 🙂
