Food and Recipe of the Month: Peaches

Care of Andrea Howe at glowingongreens.com  Summer weather calls for peachy moods, and peach-filled recipes. This bright fruit is packed full of flavour and nutrients, and a perfect addition to your plate. Peaches are known for their abundance of antioxidants.
