Peaches Stop Strokes!
Why buy peaches at the farmers market?
Who knew the soft, sunset colored peach was such a powerhouse when it comes to stopping strokes? Not only that, but they also combat cancer, prevent, constipation, aid in overall digestion, and help with hemorrhoids.
When shopping for peaches, choose fragrant fruits which are unblemished and not overly firm. Because fresh peaches are highly perishable, don't buy more than you plan to use. Even when unripe, they spoil easily. Peaches that are greenish colored were probably picked too early should be avoided. Sweetness does not increase after picking, so ripe-picked fruit is always the tastiest. That is why you pruchase your fresh fruit at the local farmers market. The peaches are picked ready to eat!
