Keep College Eating Peachy Keen
August 28, 2010 | by

Classes may have started, schedules might be filling up, and the homework is more than likely piling up high. It may seem like autumn has fallen upon us, but you can still keep summer shining through your diet. Keeping your kitchen stocked with fresh produce will stretch out summer a few weeks longer. My personal favorite edible summer gems are peaches. They just scream summer!

At around 60 calories each for a medium-sized peach, the juicy fruit is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins like potassium and Vitamin A.

Talk a walk to the nearest farmers’ market with your new college friends and purchase a few peaches to snack on throughout the week.
