Eat Well LiveWell: Peach Crisp
There are many varieties of peaches grown in the United States and around the world. White, clingstone, freestone, doughnut, dwarf and nectarines are just some varieties, with yellow peaches being the most widely grown in the U.S. This means we are in the perfect position to make a fruit-forward dessert!
Using peaches in your dessert helps to reduce the overall calories of the dish, while increasing the nutrient content. Peaches are a good source of vitamin C and A, as well as fiber. The whole wheat flour and rolled oats also increase the fiber content of the recipe, helping to keep us full and possibly to reduce our cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure. Try this delicious, filling dessert topped with a dollop of ice cream and enjoy.
