For the carb lovers–peaches

Peaches are very nutrient rich. A raw peach contains on average about 2g of protein, plenty of minerals (potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, to name a few), and is an excellent source of vitamins A, E, K, and Niacin. A single peach contains about 17g of carbs- a mixture of fiber and sugars. The glycemic load of peaches, however, is relatively low (about 5; this value indicates the effect a kind of food has on blood sugar levels. Most healthy people of normal weight should aim at a GF<100; people suffering from diabetes should try to consume foods with low a GF).

Today, I am adding peaches to a bunch of frozen berries and carrots to make a light smoothie. This gives me pretty rich influx of vitamins, minerals, sugars, and fiber.

I used:

2 peaches, 1/3 cup of frozen blackberries, 2-3 frozen strawberries, a handful of baby carrots.

I then took a picture of the frozen blackberries–aren’t they beautiful? Enjoy.
