What I'm Eating

Fruit.  Mostly stone fruits.  And a lot of it.  Sweet.  Juicy. Delicious.

Peaches.  Plums.  Apricots.  Nectarines. Cherries.

Locally grown.

It's been scientifically proven that stone fruits are low on the Glycemic Index, bursting full of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, lutein, polyphenols, and so many other important vitamins and minerals.  Eating a diet that includes stone fruits, it is believed, may reduce one's risk of heart disease, cancer, eye ailments, arthritis, and diseases associated with aging.

It's summer.  How about taking advantage of the farmers' markets, getting outdoors, and enjoying the summer fruits and vegetables that are so abundant?
