There’s not a tastier way to Celebrate National Peach Month than with a quick and easy peach crisp. The nutritional benefits of the juicy fruit are peachy keen. Encased in a velvet skin, peaches are packed with potassium which can help reduce anxiety and hair loss as well as prevent muscle weakness and poor memory. In addition, peaches are loaded with fiber, which can help prevent colon cancer and lower cholesterol levels. Rich in vitamin A and C, peaches boost the immune system and make a great natural moisturizer, which is probably where the term “peaches and cream complexion” comes from. Enjoy!
