Peach is a fruit native to china, but cultivated in almost all the countries with a cool climate. They have an outer skin that is reddish-yellow in color, while the flesh is either white or yellow. Peaches that have a white flesh are usually very sweet and have very little acidity. However, the yellow-fleshed ones typically have an acidic tang, coupled with sweetness. A peach is extremely rich in vitamin A and potassium, apart from abounding in a number of other nutrients, making them rank very high in nutritional value and good for the health of an individual.

The USDA recommends that you eat at least five servings of fresh fruits daily, but unfortunately, most people don’t even come close. Adding some delicious, fresh strawberries to your diet, is a great way to get the servings of fruit you need for a well-rounded body and a healthy immune system.
Strawberries contain many nutrients such as the always-important Vitamin C. They also contain significant levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which fight those free radicals I was telling you about in my new book. These antioxidant properties are believed to be linked to what gives the strawberry its signature bright red color.
In addition to vitamin C, strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
