Summertime Foods - Peppers, Peaches 'n Pickles!
Bell peppers provide more than just color and crunch to dishes. These vibrant vegetables
are a source of valuable nutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Available year-round, bell peppers
are at their peak in August and September. Bell peppers come in green, as well as ripened
versions that turn red, yellow, orange and purplish brown. Including these vegetables in
your diet enhances your health.
Peaches — or Prunus persica — are small fruit with a fuzzy peel and a sweet white or yellow flesh. They’re thought to have originated in China more than 8,000 years ago.

Peaches are related to plums, apricots, cherries, and almonds. They’re considered drupes or stone
fruit because their flesh surrounds a shell that houses an edible seed.

They can be eaten on their own or added to a variety of dishes. What’s more, peaches are
nutritious and may offer an array of health benefits, including improved digestion, smoother skin, and allergy relief.
While you might not think of your unassuming lunchtime pickle as a health food, it may actually have more health benefits than you thought.
