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.

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.
