August is national peach month! Peaches are what is known as a stone fruit. Stone fruits are fruits that have a thick flesh that surrounds a large single pit; cherries, plums, nectarines, peaches, apricots, etc. Now is the perfect time to work them into your diet!

Stone fruits are known to be high in cancer fighting properties such as phenols, vitamin B17 and vitamin C and may be effective in fighting metabolic syndrome.  So take advantage of their healthful properties when they are in season and add them to oatmeal, salads, cereal or just have a big bowl out on the counter for snacking. To celebrate Peach Month and the healthful bounty of stone fruits on the grocery shelves I have put together this collection of tantalizing recipes featuring these antioxidant powerhouses!
