Everything’s Peachy

Low carb recipes inspired by fresh peaches.

There’s nothing like a sun-kissed, juicy peach that screams summertime, and peaches are a delicious complement to salads, main dishes and desserts.

2 Important Health Benefits of Peaches

In addition to being a good source of vitamins, peaches are:

  1. Rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps digestion and to keep your appetite under control
  2. Rich in antioxidants, which are compounds found in plants that may fight oxidative damage from inflammation and help protect your body against aging and disease. Fresh peaches tend to have higher levels of antioxidants than canned peaches.

New Low Carb Peach Recipes for Summer

These peachy low carb recipes are a great addition to your summer dinner menus:

Red Lettuce Salad with Peaches

Peaches give this light summer salad a hint of sweetness while radishes add a crunchy bite. Serve it with any main dish off the grill.

Grilled Peach Salsa Over Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin is marinated in a mixture of lime, garlic, olive oil and cilantro, then grilled and topped with a peach salsa that gets its kick from jalapeno.

Low Carb Peach Dessert Recipes

You can make the most of your extra peaches with low carb sherbet and ice cream:

Peach Buttermilk Sherbet

This fruity and creamy sherbert features chunks of fresh peaches and will keep in the freezer for up to a month.
