Healthy Snacking: Peaches + Mint.




So, I'm about to change your lives with this one, guys! 

PEACHES + MINT. 

I cannot take credit for this seriously delicious combination. This goes out to my sister, who made me try this last week, and since then, I've been obsessed with this. I know what you're thinking. Peaches and mint?! What the hell is so special about that? 

I'm telling you now...you're going to get hooked.

I have been swapping in all my snacks for this one. If you don't already know this, I'm pretty much the snacking queen. I probably should do a post on all the amazing healthy (and unhealthy) snacks I devour everyday. Yes, I'm constantly eating

Okay, lets get to this. I mean, there isn't much to it. It LITERALLY is just chopped up mint, sprinkled over your chopped up peaches. I love getting my peaches from a Farmers' Market. They are everywhere, so go out and support your local farmers. Plus, they are heavenly compared to the peaches you get at the grocery store. 


So here it is:

- 2-3 chopped up, organic peaches.
- Fresh mint leaves, chopped up finely. 
- (Optional) Real maple syrup. NOT Aunt Jemima...

Mix all that goodness up and you have yourself the most mouth-watering, bad-ass snack there is. 


Benefits of peaches:

+ Has a shit ton of Vitamin C
+ Lowers your risk of Colorectal Cancer.
+ Reduces wrinkles and improves the overall health of your skin...YES, YES, YES!
+ The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C in peaches protects your heart health.


So there you have it! A snack that I have literally been obsessed with this past week. I will do a post on some of my favourite healthy snacks sometime soon!


What are some healthy snacks you guys are loving?! SHARE!
